Weekdays 3:00PM - 7:00PM

Mark your calendar for ChristmasVille in Rock Hill.  The four-day event takes place December 1st through December 4th this year.  In reading about ChristmasVille I imagine it’s like stepping into a Hallmark Christmas movie.  The event in Old Town Rock Hill showcases more than 70 events and activities.  Visitors can stroll through the outdoor festival taking part in horse-drawn carriage rides, tours, Dickens carolers and more.  There’s even a gingerbread house contest!  And, of course, plenty of Santa sightings and ice skating. If that doesn’t scream Hallmark Christmas script, I don’t know what does!  I am always up for a fun family outing during the holidays.  And, with this one so close to home, I can’t wait to visit.  Take a look back at the celebration a few years ago to get an idea!

Their website explains ChristmasVille in Rock Hill, South Carolina draws inspiration from Rock Hill’s adopted son, Vernon Grant.  Grant was a children’s illustrator and the artist known for the famous characters that make the popping sounds on every box of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies.  Grant’s ties to Rock Hill began when he met and married a Rock Hill native working in New York in 1936.  After World War ll, the family moved to South Carolina and established a farm outside of Rock Hill. ChristmasVille is a non-profit organization depending on community businesses for support and volunteers.  Their support makes free activities like attractions and rides possible.   ChristmasVille plans to finalize the schedule of events and add them to their website soon.  So, keep checking back to plan your visit!

We’ll see you soon in Rock Hill for this year’s ChristmasVille!
