Presented by Wake Forest Downtown, Inc., the event will get underway at 6 p.m. in Centennial Plaza, 301 S. Brooks St., the gateway to the Wake Forest Town Hall.
This year’s ceremony will feature the lighting of a 30-foot Christmas tree by Mayor Vivian Jones, followed by Santa's exciting arrival in a Wake Forest fire truck.
The event will include performances by local school choirs. Free hot cocoa and a children's craft activity will also be offered.
Weather permitting, free horse and carriage rides will be available along South White Street beginning at 6:30 p.m. The rides depart from the Depot Parking Lot, 110 S. White St.

Complimentary pictures with Santa will be offered in the town hall lobby from 6:45 - 8 pm. A ticket with a time reservation is required to have your picture taken with Santa. Time tickets will be distributed in the town hall lobby beginning at 5:30 pm. Once you have your ticket with your time reservation, feel free to enjoy all the festivities and return to the picture line at the time indicated on your ticket.
