holiday events in fayetteville nc
Call me old fashioned, but I think the holidays should be celebrated in their appropriate season. If you pay attention, there's a sweet rhythm to how the season begins, and that's especially true in Cumberland County.

Each holiday season I try to plan a new outing for my family that will hopefully become a lasting tradition. Last year, we experienced the grandeur of Holiday Lights in the Garden. Year before that, we joined the downtown revelry at A Dickens Holiday and took in the classic It’s a Wonderful Life on stage. As this season quickly approaches, I’m noticing how many festivities are planned not just in Fayettevi… [...]
