Hartsville kicks off holiday season
On Nov. 15, downtown Hartsville bustled with holiday spirit as visitors and residents enjoyed a variety of Hartsville for the Holidays happenings from 6-9 p.m.
At 6 p.m., the Centennial Tree Lighting ceremony in Centennial Park kicked off the night’s festivities as Mayor Mel Pennington and Santa Claus lit the Centennial Park Tree.
Before the tree lighting, guests enjoyed holiday music by the Hartsville High School Chorus.
After the tree lighting, there was snow tubing on the snow slides in the parking lot between Centennial Park and First Citizens Bank.
Nov. 15 marked the first day of Santa’s Mailbox located in Centennial Park.
This is the perfect opportunity for little ones to put their must-have items for the holidays on a wish list and mail it off to Santa.
Santa will reply to addressed letters until Dec. 20.
The mailbox will return to the North Pole Dec. 27.
