On Friday, December 4, bring the whole family to Downtown Statesville for the Holiday Shop & Stroll! From 5:30 - 8:30 pm, you can enjoy a fun evening of merchant open houses, stroll the sidewalks, and enjoy the sparkle of holiday lights. Enjoy a live nativity, and maybe experience a little snowfall magic.
Downtown visitors can enjoy a Live Nativity at Broad Street United Methodist Church from 6 – 6:30 pm.
Santa’s Magic Mailbox will be on the front steps at City Hall during the Shop & Stroll in hopes that Statesville boys and girls will send him their lists! Once the letters are placed in the Magic Mailbox, they are special expressed straight to the North Pole! No need for a stamp!
And if you include your name and address, Santa will write you back a personal note to let you know he received your letter. The mailbox will be out Friday night at City Hall, 227 S. Center Street. Stop by and enjoy the building's festive decorations and take a selfie with the Nutcrackers standing guard at the door!
Horse Drawn Carriage rides (rain or shine) are available for purchase online with timeslots still available https://www.downtownstatesville.com/horse-drawn-carriage-rides
Also visitors can walk thru the Nostalgic Christmas Park on the grounds of the Historic Sharpe House from 5:30 – 9:30.

Walk thru hosted by staff and volunteers, donations accepted.
