A Merry Little Christmas Arts, Crafts and Gift Show

victorian-christmas-presents-188x300For families near and far seeking a local outdoor shopping experience, including 100+ local and regional arts & crafts vendors with items to compliment hearth and home as well as unique items for stuffing those stockings, come out and join us for this special two-day event.

Everyone’s favorite kettle corn and shaved ice will be available, and as always food trucks from some of our local favorites, so bring the kids with you & romp around the specially decorated grounds and let the kids pick out something for grandma Sue, great-aunt Judy and dear old dad!

Admission is $5.00; children under 2 free. Inflatables will be on site, so Santa’s little helpers will have unlimited opportunity to bounce to their heart’s delight and try their hand at Professor Poplar’s Fantabulous Games & Amusements!

For those moms and dads, grandmoms and pops, and uncles and aunties interested in a little something special to sip as they browse, Wrightsville Beach Brewery and Noni Bacca Winery will be serving locally brewed and fermented beverages by the glass.

On Saturday, Mr. Twister from Universal Studios will be onsite to twist up balloons into magical shapes and from 11-11:45 a.m. a sing-a-long for the kids with Mark from the Broccoli Brothers.

The farm animals will be in full regalia and available for nose-rubbing and picture-taking, a General Store staged for campy family photo opportunities at the Stables as well as the a viewing of the movie, Elf!

Visit Santa’s Workshop for children both Naughty & Nice to write and post a letter to Santa, or for our soldiers abroad send a letter at our USO station, sponsored by retired Army Colonel John Moran.

Shhhhhh… we hear SANTA will be making an appearance on Saturday from 10 – noon &  2 – 4PM, and on Sunday from 1 – 3 p.m.
