Christmas on Main Street returns to Fayetteville Dec. 7


Christmas on Main Street returns this year to downtown Fayetteville on Saturday, Dec. 7, and will feature the annual Christmas parade and a variety of activities, including the tree lighting and a visit from Santa.

Starting with a 5 p.m. parade through the Courthouse Square, the fun will continue at the Lane Brown Gazebo as guests visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus and enjoy live Christmas music sung by choir and other vocal talent.

A highlight of the evening will be the traditional Christmas tree lighting at the adjacent Heritage Park.

“Christmas on Main Street is a beautiful way to conclude a great year of community events here in Downtown Fayetteville,” said Main Street Program Manager Joyce Waits. “This is one of our best-attended events, and it is the holiday season kickoff for many families.”

Waits noted that the popular Christmas parade will again stage at the Fayette County Justice Center and head north along Lee Street toward the Historic Courthouse. At the Courthouse, the parade will turn left along Stonewall Avenue and proceed to Heritage Park Way, rounding the corner to then head eastbound toward South Glynn Street. The parade will turn right onto South Glynn Street traveling south before turning left onto Melear Way. From there, the parade will continue straight onto Center Drive to the terminus at the Fayette County Justice Center.
