As we head into the holidays, this year is sure to be the best ever. Since we can socialize instead of doing social distancing, many are anxious to get the holiday spirit rolling. Summerville has always been a town where community shines and neighbors still stop to get to know one another. It is also a place where there is always something going on, especially this time of year. If you are ready to kick off the holiday season and make it the brightest, then participate in these upcoming Christmas MUSTS chosen by our real estate Summerville agent pros!
Summerville Tree Lighting and Display
The lighting of the Christmas tree at Hutchinson Square will be held on November 29th from 5:30 pm – 8 pm. Bring the little ones so they can hand off their wish list and get pictures with Santa. There will also be hot cocoa and shopping galore. Check out the window displays and the countdown to the big lighting ceremony. It is one of those traditions that you definitely shouldn’t miss!
Christmas at the Farm
