Christmas in Davidson , an annual tradition since 1988, is my absolute favorite holiday event in and around Lake Norman. This amazing 3-night, small-town holiday festival can’t help but get you in the holiday spirit and remind you of the warmth and comfort in our communities. From strolling along Main Street enjoying hot cider to taking a carriage ride or doing so serious gift shopping there truly is something for everyone and every age!
Here is a great summary from DavidsonNews.net (a GREAT resource for local news and events):
Take a ride on the trolley, stroll down beautiful and picturesque Main Street, start your holiday shopping early at the many wonderful and unique specialty shops, take a journey through the Holiday Village of vendors on the Village Green and enjoy a wide variety of entertainment on the Library Stage. Be sure to visit Ten Thousand Villages at the Davidson College Presbyterian Church Congregation House for goods from over 30 developing countries. Take the little ones for that all important visit with Santa and then sit in on Story Time with Mrs. Claus. Visit the many participating Davidson businesses who will be offering everything from reindeer food and art projects for the kids to live music and complimentary beverages. Make sure to visit Town Hall where the little ones can enjoy a wonderful holiday theater performance and ‘make & take’ craft projects. Enjoy the fine foods and beverages at the many fantastic restaurants Davidson has to offer and also inside Frosty’s Food Court. Experience the wonder and beauty of the Live Nativity. Enjoy the amazing entertainment offered nightly by Davidson United Methodist Church. Make sure you take the family holiday photo as you enjoy your Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides down Main Street. Then jump on over to South Main Square and be treated to live entertainment, fine art and gingerbread cookies for the kids. Enjoy the mouth watering foods at the fine restaurants at South Main and take the entire family ice skating!

I got this comment sharing about a special project you might want to support ( thanks Sue!):
I wanted to let you know about a project that the students at Davidson elementary are doing to help the environment. They have taken items and recycled them into Christmas ornaments to be used to decorate a Christmas tree at Christmas in Davidson sponsored by our company. They will then have the ornament returned to them to use on their own Christmas tree. I love spreading the news of
unique recycling efforts. Please let your readers know if they are at Christmas in Davidson to please go by and see the tree on the green. There will be a contest and they would love
Finally, the 29th Annual North Mecklenburg Christmas Parade is this Saturday as well. Starting at 1:00pm it runs from Davidson south along N.C. 115 to Cornelius.
