Rain forecast postpones Olde Fashioned Christmas; Santa on the Square still on

Due to the anticipated rainy weather, outdoor activities scheduled for Olde Fashioned Christmas in Downtown Hendersonville will now take place on Friday, Dec. 8, from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.

The rescheduled activities promise the same festive spirit with twinkling tree lights, joyous carolers, uplifting holiday choirs, musicians, and the magic of live ice sculpting. Attendees will have the opportunity to stroll alongside Victorian lords and ladies, explore local shops, indulge in delicious treats, and discover treasures for everyone on their shopping list.

Carolina Horse and Carriage will be offering free carriage rides at the Historic Courthouse from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. While the outdoor ‘Olde Fashioned’ festivities are rescheduled, don’t let that stop you from enjoying the magic of Historic Downtown Hendersonville with many shops and restaurants open late along the Main Street and each Avenue that offer everything you need all year long, but especially in the yuletide season.
