There have been changes to the Come Home for Christmas Event Saturday on the square. The Parade has been cancelled due to weather and the Ice Skating has been moved indoors at the United Methodist Church from 4 to 8.
This year’s theme is “Frozen,” based on the popular Disney movies.
A small business bazaar will be open from 4 to 7 p.m. at the former Arts & Experience building along College Avenue, a Mouse House and train display will be at Creekside Community Coffee and Brew, and following the parade entertainment will be presented at the Greenville University SMART Center.
Santa Claus will greet children at his house set up on the northwest part of the square. Various groups will serve food and drinks. A window decorating contest for businesses is also part of the festivities.
