Holiday Parade Finale

After you enjoy the Downtown Holiday Parade, keep the fun going at the Historical Museum.

Sip on hot chocolate, meet Mrs. Claus, make an ornament … the list keeps going … make a Sunset Hills-style lighted Christmas ball to hang outside your home, have fun with old-fashioned toys, and stop in at the McNairy House and Hockett Blacksmith Shop.

Odds are you’ll still be shopping for friends and family, so stop in the Museum Shop to give a gift that says Greensboro, from keychain and magnet stocking stuffers to tasty local foods and teas to finely-crafted pottery and jewelry.

Be there or be square …
