Selma gets in the holiday spiritPublished 9:15pm Thursday, November 29, 2012
It’s officially the season for hot cocoa, family gatherings, caroling and joy. It’s the holiday season and we couldn’t be more excited about all the festive things going on in Selma.
The holiday spirit will parade down Broad Street, literally, this Saturday for the annual Christmas Parade. We hope to see the whole town out for the lighting of the Christmas tree in front of city hall where families can also get their picture made for free with Santa Clause.
And the joy won’t end with the parade, which begins at 10 a.m. on Broad Street. Frames n’ Things will hold their holiday open house till 4 p.m. and Sturdivant Hall will host their 2nd annual Sturdivant Hall Christmas Fair, which will offer an array of ornate handmade crafts great for gift giving.
Sunday, the Selma Art Guild will continue the festive weekend with their annual Christmas Party for the community. An array of artworks and crafts will be available for sale. We encourage everyone to visit the guild and see what Selma’s artistans have been up to.
We’re fortunate to live in a place that really gets in the holiday spirit and remembers that this is the season to spend time with cherished family and friends. We hope that everyone takes time out of their busy holiday schedules and remembers what the season is all about.
We also encourage everyone to shop locally this season and support our local businesses. Every present can be found right here in Selma. From apparel to food—it’s all right here.
There’s no need to travel far and spend gas money to get that “perfect gift.” Simply walk down Broad Street or drive through Dallas County and you will find everything you need.
From us to you, we wish you all a merry holiday season.
