"COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS" 2010








Friday, November 26

5:30 pm in Downtown Greenville.


The evening will begin with carolers (the Greenville High School Choir) leading everyone in a procession around the square to light the tree, the shop windows and the large Daniken Christmas tree on the courthouse lawn. Santa and Mrs Claus will arrive on the Trolley just in time to light the big tree before going to the Globe Theater to visit with the children.

There are rumors that the Grinch might be showing up to try and steal Christmas this year. The trolley will then carry passengers to the various venues around town. It will make it's way around every 15-20 minutes. It should be a magical evening for children and adults with fun things to see and participate in all along the way.
