It’s time for the 10th Annual Christmas in Florence event on Saturday, December 7th from 10am – 3pm at the Florence County High School. Support your local crafters, entrepreneurs and non-profit groups by shopping for unique hand-made gifts, food items, crafts and other home-based specialty items from over 90 vendors in the gymnasium and main hallway. You’ll find the perfect one-of-a-kind gift for people on your list. Get in the Christmas spirit by taking a break in the auditorium to enjoy a variety of free Christmas performances including music, dance and drama. This event is free and there are many door prizes to win.
Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive at 10:30am. Kids can sit on Santa’s lap and hear a story from Mrs. Claus in the cafeteria. Red and white homemade chili, hot dogs, smoked shredded turkey sandwiches, chips, drinks and homemade cookies will be for sale in the cafeteria. Proceeds from the kitchen fund a variety of Chamber of Commerce community projects. Kids can create their own free Christmas craft projects with help from the Florence High School volunteer TORPEDOS group in the art room just off the mail hall.
New this year, the Florence County Sheriff’s Department is sponsoring a “Fill the Cruiser” with non-perishable food items that will be donated to our local food pantry. Please bring a non-perishable food item to add to the cruiser.
