Merry Christmas from the Washington Tourism Development Authority! It is such an exciting time in Washington and the Inner Banks. Be sure to take the time to enjoy the wonderful holiday offerings in the community. Don’t forget to shop local this holiday season, too. Downtown shops are offering extended hours on Friday nights this month.
Hometown Holiday Weekend
It is being called the Hometown Holiday Weekend. And, if this weekend doesn’t give you a sense of “hometown” perhaps you’ve got a hint of Scrooge in your system! Events of the weekend include the Holiday Arts & Crafts Show at the Civic Center (Friday & Saturday), Washington Christmas Parade (11 a.m. Saturday), and cookies and pictures with Santa (10-2, Saturday), Holiday Home Tour (Saturday). Don’t forget to bring a toy to the parade for Toys for Tots.

On Thursday, December 6th enjoy the Choir from Elizabeth City State University as they perform at Northside High School at 7 p.m. The Beaufort County Community Orchestra will perform at the First Christian Church at 3 p.m. on December 9th.
