'Christmas In Downtown' Set For Friday

Christmas in Downtown will come to the Greeneville Historic District on Friday evening, according to a spokesman for Main Street: Greeneville, which sponsors that annual Christmas-season event.

Candlelight, music and caroling on the County Courthouse lawn begin at 5 p.m. Friday with piano students of Deane Gray and Pam Thacker preforming holiday classics.

The Tusculum View Chorus, under the direction of Jessica Ricker, will sing beginning at 5:40 p.m. as the crowd joins in to sing more holiday favorites by candlelight while awaiting the arrival of Father Christmas, portrayed by Greg Isom, who will light the Community Christmas tree at 6 p.m.

Father Christmas will be accompanied by "Winter and Company Snowflake Fairies."

The crowd will carol its way to town hall at the corner of Church and College streets, where the town hall tree, a live Norwegian Spruce, will be lit at approximately 6:10 p.m.

The tree was donated by Main Street: Greeneville through a landscaping endowment in honor of Shane Matthews and his family -- his wife, Christy; their son, Cole; Shane Matthews' mother, Gayle; and his late father, Mondro. The Matthews family will light the tree.

Shane Matthews and his father planted the last live tree at town hall 20 years ago, and this year he will be joined by his son, Cole.

Vocalist Carol Susong, who is also Greeneville City Recorder, and friends will welcome in the holiday season as they sing for those attending the event. Refreshments will be provided.

WAGON RIDES AND SANTA

Heritage Gardens' old-fashioned tree lot on the lawn at First Presbyterian Church will be where visitors can see the live "Rein-de-llamas" provided by Walnut Ridge Llama Farm and make magic food for Santa's reindeer with Ethan Myers of Myers Pumpkin Patch and Greenhouses while shopping for fresh mistletoe.

Santa will also be there.

Have your picture made with Santa and check out holiday bling from G Spirit and Sports. The Greeneville Department of Parks and Recreaction and the Greeneville Department of Public Works will provide holiday wagon rides in downtown, with loading taking place mid-block on East Church Street near the outdoor movie.

Merchants will open for shopping and dining.

Those that will be open will include Greeneville Antique Market, Art Space 4 Gallery, Inn Style Boutique, Greeneville Arts Council, Evans Jewelers and Gallery, Richland Creek Gifts, Towne Square Shopping Center and Top Dog Hot Dogs at the corner of Main and Depot streets, and the General Morgan Inn.

Take the chill off in the lobby of the General Morgan Inn, where a warm beverage reception will be available, while listening to the Tusculum College Jazz Band under the direction of David Price as it performs seasonal classics beginning after the tree lighting at 6 p.m.

OUTDOOR MOVIE 'ELF' AND COSTUME CONTEST

The wall of the Dixie Cleaners building on East Church Street will become a giant outdoor movie screen where the movie "Elf" will be shown beginning at 7:30 p.m., sponsored by TEVET.

Dress like "Elf." The best adult and child's costume will win a prize.

Hot food and beverages will be available for purchase from the youth of First Presbyterian Church as a mission's fundraiser.

ATTRACTIONS OPEN

The Andrew Johnson Homestead will welcome the holidays with candlelight tours of the home.

In addition, the Nathanael Greene Museum will be open from 5-8 p.m. with free admission, but donations are always welcome.

The 1860s Living History and Dance Society will host a Civil War Christmas Ball, period correct clothing required, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at the gym at The Andrew Johnson Complex, 310 S. Main St. (also the location of the Nathanael Greene Museum).

A $5 fee will be charged to those wishing to dance, but visitors are encouraged to observe at no charge. Light refreshments will be available. Contact Lynn at 470-1000 for further dance details.

A news release stated that the Main Street: Greeneville Board of Directors and Membership wish to thank the many people who help make this event possible.
