Visitors can pick-up a Merchant Participation Card at the Moore County News, beginning at 10 a.m. and ask participating merchants to stamp it. This card may be redeemed at the News before 3 p.m. for a 2012 Lynchburg Collectors Ornament.
There will also be a gingerbread house competition, with the houses on display in the shops. Enjoy the “Taste of Lynchburg” at the Masonic Lodge from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For $5 you will have a taste of sweet treats prepared by area businesses and some of Lynchburg’s finest cooks.
Entertainment begins with the Coleman March Ensemble, singing the music of Christmas at 12 noon in the gazebo. At 2 p.m. the Flat Creek Contra Dancers, dressed in Charles Dickens’ era costumes, will perform on the square.
