Edgefield Heritage Holidays Celebrates Its Third Year

web posted November 12, 2008
EDGEFIELD – The Edgefield Community Development Association (ECDA) is proud to present the third annual “Heritage Holidays.”  The “Heritage Holidays” events bring the spirit of the season into Edgefield stores, restaurants, and heritage sites. 

The ECDA has a full calendar of events for the public to participate in.  First up on the calendar is the Merchant Holiday Open House on Thursday, November 20th.  Edgefield merchants will keep their doors open until 8pm for guests to wander through and get a jump on their holiday shopping.  In addition to the shops staying open late, this will also be the night of the Christmas tree lighting on the square at 6pm.

Stop by the square on Saturday, November 22nd between 9am and 2pm for the Holiday Market.  The square will be full of vendors selling holiday decorations, soaps, jewelry, ornaments, baked goods, handbags, pottery, fresh green wreaths and more.  There will also be a cake walk during the Market.  Proceeds from the cake walk will benefit the local Food Bank.  Rain location for the Holiday Market is the Rocky Shop, which is located at 203 Main Street.

Here is a list of additional “Heritage Holidays” events to keep in mind. 
•    Friday, November 28th – Biggest Shopping Day of the Year – Edgefield merchants will be open from 9am to 7pm.
•    Sunday, December 7th – Holiday Celebration – Edgefield Christmas parade at 4pm and visit with Santa at the Discovery Center from 5pm to 6:30pm.
•    Thursday, December 11th – Holiday Downtown Shop-Around from 4pm to 8pm.
•    Sunday, December 14th – Tour of Churches beginning at 3pm.
•    Friday, Dec. 19th & Saturday, Dec. 20th – Experience a winter wonderland in downtown Edgefield with music filling the square and merchants staying open until 8pm on Friday for all those last minute holiday gifts.

Remember - SHOP LOCAL, THINK LOCAL, BE LOCAL this holiday season.

The ECDA would like to thank those who make this celebration possible – the Town of Edgefield and the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor.
