Hope will be celebrating the 15th Annual "Christmas of Yesteryear!" on Friday, Nov. 17th from 5 to 9 p.m. on the Town Square.

Don't miss the fun as the shops stay open late and strolling carolers entertain as we open the Christmas Season in Hope. The Yellow Trail Museum will have its annual huge bake sale and cookie decorating, as well as offering crafts for kids upstairs as well as some information about the Moravian customs that have influenced our town. Carriage Rides into Hope's Past will begin at Norman's Cabin from 5:45-7:45 p.m. for a cost of $2 a ticket.

Santa will arrive at Dr. Sweet's Office on the south side of the square at 6 p.m. Hope First Baptist Church will offer a live Nativity in the shelter house at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.

And don't miss our first-ever Christmas Fireworks at 8:45 p.m. that evening.

Let's all ring in the Holidays together on Friday night in the Hope Town Square.
