Historic Wilmington Holly Jolly Holiday Stroll
During the Holly Jolly, people were invited to stroll the historic downtown to experience holiday sights, sounds, flavors and activities. Downtown is beautifully decorated for the holidays. Over 50 downtown shops entered a window decorating contest. See below for the winners. The exteriors of many homes in the historic residential district are decorated and Historic Wilmington Foundation led walking tours through the neighborhoods at night when the lights are most beautiful. Downtown merchants provided refreshments and holiday gift ideas in an “open house” setting. Musicians, choral groups, and other entertainers were placed throughout downtown both Friday and Saturday. Santa Claus made appearances at various times and locations as well. Thank you to all who got their HOLLY JOLLY ON!
