Watch the video to see how our small town of New Bern, NC, comes together to kick-off the holiday season.
We enjoyed the Jonkonnu’s performance from Tryon Palace, meeting new people, and catching up with friends.
Radio personalities, Amy and Marc of V103.3FM, entertained the crowd starting at 3pm. Onlookers enjoyed and danced to the music of The Jonkonnu dancers from Tryon Palace.
Children gathered in the O’ Marks Building for face painting, letters to Santa, crafts and other activities
Anna Bulszewicz and Brian North from News Channel 12 joined in the festivities.
When Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived, the “Light Up the Season” countdown began.
When the light’s hit Bear Plaza and Santa’s House, the first snow began to fall. The children reached for the sky! This was a special moment for many as the first snowfall was dedicated in memory of New Bern’s beloved Meteorologist, Skip Waters.
We hope to see you around town as there’s all kinds of exciting things to do and awesome events!
