Aberdeen already gearing up for Christmas Street Dec. 7

November is already marching through with cooler temperatures and the promise of holiday events coming up!

Aberdeen, once again, is starting the season with Christmas Street on Saturday, Dec. 7. The theme this year is "Christmas Dreams," so get your thinking caps on because you will surely want to be a part of the many activities planned.


Breakfast with Santa at the Grace United Methodist Church will start off the day at 7 a.m. and run until 11 a.m. Tickets will be available at the door.

The big Christmas Craft Fair at the Fire Hall on North Rogers Street will start at 9 a.m. and last until 2 p.m. This is the time to get an early start on those Christmas gifts, and have lunch while you're there.


The Aberdeen Room Archives and Museum at 18 Howard St. will be open from 10 a.m. unit 2:30 p.m.

Again this year, there will be a Nativity Scene Display from 1 to 2 p.m. at Grace United Methodist Church on West Bel Air Avenue.

Street entertainment will begin at 2 p.m. on West Bel Air Avenue. This will also give you a chance to see all of the window decorations at the individual businesses.

Something new this year is the German Christmas Market beginning at 2 p.m. and lasting until 6 p.m. at Festival Park.

Then comes the parade that will begin promptly at 3 p.m. with Mr. and Mrs. Claus. We will talk more about this event in a later column, but make plans to be part of it, or watch the spectacular parade.

Then, after the parade, Aberdeen has something special this year when it's time for tree lighting.

Plan to be in Aberdeen on December 7!
