THE CHRISTMAS SEASON KICKS OFF THIS SATURDAY
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.
WAY too much like Christmas. Have you seen that Thanksgiving forecast? It’s like the Polar Express is delivering frozen turkeys from the North Pole. It’s like the day when Flick got his tongue stuck to the flagpole on a Triple Dog Dare. It’s a Thanksgiving that’s like that Christmas when it’s too frigid outside to ride your new ruby red Scwinn bicycle, so you just put on your new socks Grammie gave you and sit there with some hot chocolate, staring out the window.
It’s going to be that kind of cold.
But good news, people, because things are looking downright pleasant for Small Business Saturday and the Wilmington Jaycees’ 55th Annual Christmas Parade. Our New Market Wilm team road the floats last year (and had a great time while doing so), but the place to be this Saturday is going to be on the sidelines, because that’s where you’ll need to be to catch all the great things happening on Market!
Watch for live entertainment from noon-1:30pm at LOMA Coffee, Starbucks on Market, Chelsea Tavern and Margaux, and then at night it’s Cirque Dreams at The Playhouse, Ben LeRoy & The Snap at The Queen, and a free light show outside The Grand Opera House at 5pm, 5:30pm and 6pm!
It’s definitely looking a lot like Christmas!
