Triangle Holiday Events ~ Christmas 2010!


The Holiday Season officially kicks off this weekend in the Triangle with the return of the Raleigh Christmas Parade this Saturday (November 20th) and the ever popular Christmas Tree Lighting at North Hills that evening at 6:00pm.  With so many activities scheduled over the next two months, I thought it would be helpful to have them all listed in once place .  If you can think of anything I may have missed and would like me to add it to the list, please let me know.  Happy Holidays!
