Fall is here, the holidays are near, and Greensboro is busy preparing for plenty of excitement over the next few months in Lake Oconee’s Hometown.
Just around the corner is the annual Downtown Trick or Treat from 5-7 pm on October 29. Downtown Trick or Treat provides families with a safe environment to participate in the tradition of Trick or Treat. The event is made possible by the participation of generous downtown Greensboro merchants. Be sure to stop in for treats and goodies for children age twelve and under.
Soon after the cornstalks are removed, Greensboro will decorate with garland and lights since there are only a few weeks until Christmas. Downtown Greensboro is already working to help you and your family enjoys the holidays in your hometown!
The downtown businesses will kick off the season with the Merchant’s Holiday Open House on November 14. Get a head start on your shopping in Lake Oconee’s Hometown. Expect to find complimentary gift-wrap, hot cider, and other surprises to make your shopping experience more enjoyable. You will not want to miss the great items our local stores will have to share.
Don’t miss Small Business Saturday on November 28 in Downtown Greensboro. Local merchants have partnered with American Express to promote shopping local. Make sure to shop early to get your Shop Small bag.
The Lighting of the Tree celebration will take place from 6-8 pm on the evening of Friday, December 4. Mark your calendars! Santa will be available for children to visit, there will be an old-fashioned hay ride through town, and your favorite holiday tunes will be sung ‘round the tree! Come early and enjoy dinner from D’Lish Bistro or The Yesterday Cafe while local choirs and choral groups preform throughout the evening.
Local organizations and non-profits are invited to participate in the event by offering winter goodies such as hot chocolate, baked goods, or other holiday favorites.
