PINEHURST — The Village of Pinehurst is set to kick-off the Christmas season with its annual Christmas Tree Lighting event. This year, the celebration is scheduled for Friday, December 1, at Tufts Memorial Park, located in the heart of downtown Pinehurst.
From 5pm to 7:30pm, the park will become a hub of holiday festivities, inviting the community and visitors to enjoy an evening filled with music and the opportunity to meet Santa Claus. The highlight of the evening, the official tree lighting ceremony, is planned for 6:30pm.
Complementing the holiday cheer, local vendors will be present, offering a variety of food and beverages for purchase.
In addition to the evening’s primary festivities, the Pinehurst Business Partners have organized the “A Village Christmas Holiday Open House.” This initiative allows attendees to get a head start on their Christmas shopping by exploring extended business hours and pop-up shops throughout downtown Pinehurst. The open house aims to create a warm, welcoming environment for shopping and strolling, enhancing the traditional holiday experience.
The Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Open House events are free to the public, offering an opportunity for families and friends to gather and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season in a community-centered setting.
