Participating stores and restaurants will be having holiday sales and other events. Many stores will have extended hours during the Holiday Parade and Grand Illumination (scheduled for December 5th, beginning at 5:30 pm), as well as during the themed shopping evenings on December 9th through 12th. Retailers will feature items and sales to make your holiday shopping as easy as a holiday pumpkin pie!

Join us on Saturday, December 12th at Noon for a jolly ole dance performance by Got 2 Dance.

Be sure to participate in our First Annual Gingerbread House Contest. Its time to butter up those mixers and get creative in building and decorating your own Gingerbread home. Drop your Gingerbread House off at the former Arts of the Albemarle building on Main Street (next door to Port Discover) between the hours of 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm on December 5th. The Gingerbread Homes will be displayed throughout the Holidays on the Harbor week. Winners will be announced on December 12th at 3:00 pm in the categories of: individual, families, children, organizations, and professionals.
