Banner Elk’s Christmas in the Park Held Dec. 6

Nov. 26, 2014. Kick off the Christmas season with Banner Elk. On Saturday, Dec. 6, the town will host Christmas events including Breakfast with Santa, two showings of the movie “Arthur Christmas,” cookie decorating, ornament making, Christmas market and more.

IMG_5046The Parade of Lights has a new route that will make the parade slightly longer and travel past more businesses in Banner Elk. Most of the businesses will be staying open late, and many will offer Christmas treats! The parade ends with the arrival of Santa in Tate-Evans Park, and the park will be filled with activities.

Santa’s workshop will be set up in the park, along with live elves making toys! There will be a letter to Santa station, train rides through the luminary lighted park, an outdoor movie, a campfire with s’mores and a live nativity scene.
