DEC 15, 2017- DecemberFest!
December 15th, 2017 is the next 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury!
This month's event is hosted indoors only - so that means no artists and crafters outside on the street - but there is still tons to do and see! So don your ugliest sweater for a night of shopping, gallery shows, carriage rides and more!
This 3rd Friday coincides with the First Annual Holiday Horse & Carriage Rides hosted by The Acorn Market. This sold out event is a great way to get in the holiday spirit, and see Downtown Salisbury is a whole new way. The ride features a 1/2 mile loop that includes the Plaza, hosted by R and B Ranch and includes a special holiday dinner buffet, hot chocolate, Christmas cookies, carolers and more! Even if you didn’t get tickets, you can still enjoy seeing carriage rides taking place downtown throughout the evening!
Angello's Unique Gifts will also be in full gear for the Holidays, and will be having a Huge Sale for the last minute items on your list, including free Gift Wrap. You can even design your very own "Downtown Diva SBY" Holiday Gift Basket complete with your hand selected elegant piece from Kuhn's Jewelers.
Dorman's Christmas Tree Farm is back again this year, selling fresh Christmas Trees and wreaths in the wrought iron gate cut-through located near the bottom of the Plaza.
Plus, check out the all new Mistletoe Market, right next door in the building formerly known as Parker Place. Join Barefoot Baby Boutique and Minds in Motion Children's Museum as they bring Christmas cheer to the Downtown Plaza. Come rock around a Christmas tree, ride a 'reindeer', sip some cider, watch elves paint ornaments, shop for kids toys and interact with a Minds in Motion kids exhibit. A local artist will also be on site taking order for personalized wooden reindeer.
