Come Home For Christmas In Greenville

The annual Come Home for Christmas event was held in downtown Greenville Saturday evening. Less than ideal weather forced the cancellation of the lighted Christmas parade and the portable ice skating rink had to be moved indoors at the First United Methodist Church. Otherwise, there were plenty of activities for people of all ages and a large crowd came out for the fun.
