Christmas is really about the memories families create together. The much-anticipated Christmas in the Country is hard for anyone to forget. And those who have been before look forward to it year after year. Located on the Old Homestead Farm in Rocky Point, this celebration of Christmas is a great way to get into the holiday spirit and share the magic of the season with loved ones.
Despite being only 15 minutes outside of Wilmington, Christmas in the Country feels like a winter wonderworld away. It will be open to bring joy and cheer to local and visiting families alike from 5:30 pm until 9:00 pm on Sundays through Thursdays, and from 5:30 pm until 10:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
Running from November 28th until December 31st, Christmas in the Country begins with a mile-long drive adorned with over 175,000 dazzling Christmas lights synced to our favorite carols. It only costs $25 per car and there is a maximum vehicle height of 12′. Vehicles with over 10 people are subject to an extra charge per head.
At the end of the magical mile visitors will find all things Christmas. There are plenty of vendors selling local, hand crafted holiday decorations and gifts as well as family-friendly events, crafts, and goodies. Enjoy hot cocoa while taking pictures with Santa and scanning for great stocking stuffers. You can even leave with a Christmas tree! Many families have made a visit to Christmas in the Country a traditional way to usher in the holiday season.
Santa and many of the volunteers at Christmas in the Country have experience with children and adults with special needs. Truly aimed to be a joyful event for the whole community, Christmas in the Country continually strive to make this an enjoyable event for everyone. The light clearance was raised specifically to accommodate vans from local facilities and organizations.
Don’t linger too long after the turkey dinner this year. Make sure to grab those Christmas lists as you load up the minivan to head out to one of Rocky Point’s favorite festivals. This year’s Christmas in the Country will be talked about for seasons to come!
