Upcoming Holiday Event
Here’s a phenomenon that has long bothered me: as cities grow, they tend to build bigger and better further out and just vacate downtown areas, many times causing those areas to deteriorate over time. I’ve watched this happen to my hometown in Indiana, and it makes me incredibly sad. So whenever I learn about associations and communities that come together to revitalize the heart of their city, well I am simply thrilled. Welcome to Uptowne High Point, a thriving downtown filled with furniture showrooms, shops, restaurants, and historic neighborhoods.
On Saturday, December 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Uptowne High Point will be celebrating Christmas with the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival. Holiday Stroll – A Dickens Christmas will be filled with music, carriage rides, crafts, and even a visit from Santa. For a complete schedule of events, click here. It looks to be a fun-filled day. I hope you come out and support your local, thriving downtown.
