Christmas on Salem Steet - Apex, NC

onSalem Street

Happy Holidays from Craig Rutman!

Every year, in the first week of December, the town of Apex, NC welcomes in the holiday season with its annual Christmas on Salem Street festivities.

Salem Street will be closed to traffic and the twinkling lights and garlands will guide the way to the Historic Depot, where folks from all over will celebrate the lighting of the Apex Christmas Tree.

Carriage and sleigh rides will provide the only transportation on Salem Street on this special evening.

On Saturday morning, beginning at 7AM, the annual family Pancake and Sausage Breakfast will take place at the Salem Street Fire Station. Following breakfast, Santa will be on hand for photographs!

All day Saturday, children can compete for amazing prizes as they enjoy Scrooge’s Scavenger Hunt.

Saturday, at 5PM, as the carolers fill the night air with song, the Annual Christmas Parade gets underway.

Then on Sunday, beginning at 1PM, the Apex Historical Society will hold its Beautiful Home Tour. The tour is just one more great opportunity to see how beautiful our little town really is.

And, why Apex is known as “The Peak of Good Living”!

Apex North Carolina - The Peak of Good Living!

Craig, I have to admit it, you make a darned good Santa?  How are you at being the Easter Bunny?  Careful, you might be called to officiate at these events!  It looks like a wonderful event in Apex and Salem Street sounds like a wonderful place to be any time of the year.

Carole - You know me. I'll be happy to be the emcee of almost any event! I'm not one to shy away! I'm not sure about the Easter bunny thing though.....

Wow Mr. Ambassador Santa seems to look alot like you this year...or is it that you look like Santa??  This sounds like a terrific event.  Being in an extremely small town we don't have events like this.

Kathleen - Hope you had a great weekend. I subscribe to the theory that even serious things can be fun if you approach them correctly! Glad to have made you smile!

Debra - Well come on down this way Debra! Apex is still a small town, but there's lots of events just like this one every year.

Irene - After last year's debacle, are you sure you want to sit on Santa's lap?!!!

Craig,  What a great post -- it really makes me wish that I could be there.  Iam looking forward to the photos of the event.  I also noticed that you have the greatest followers writing comments on the post.  I loved every comment and your answers, of course.
