Ring in the Season

EXETER - “Ring in the Season” in historic Exeter, as their 4-day celebration kicks off the holidays! There’s something for everyone planned for this first annual event, and plenty to keep everyone in the family busy (even the dog!) during the entire first weekend of December.

The Festivities kick off on Thurs., December 5, with the 15th annual Festival of

Trees which has been a favorite of all Exeter-area residents since its inception. It’s a magical night that includes a visit from Santa at the Bandstand,, and many area businesses are offering activities for families and special offers to help start the holiday shopping season.

Friday night is all glitz and glamour as adults can make a date night full of holiday cheer. The American Independence Museum will host a special event at its Folsom Tavern. Live music, historical roleplayers, and hors d’oeuvres are planned. The Inn by the Bandstand is hosting a holiday soiree featuring The Seacoast Wind Ensemble from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Tickets for the event are $25.00 per person, and 15% of the proceeds will go to the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry.

On Saturday, start your day enjoying a pancake breakfast hosted by the Exeter Rotary Interact clubs from EHS and PEA at the First Baptist Church. During the day, a number of businesses are offering children’s activities, most of them for free, while families come to town to continue their holiday shopping.

Holiday Movies will be showing at Exeter Town Hall during the afternoon and that evening, the 56th annual Exeter Holiday Parade kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Families are encouraged to come downtown early to get a good spot and enjoy a warm drink from one of the many restaurants and cafes. Be sure to stay and welcome Santa to Exeter. There are more than 10 new entries to this year’s parade, so it is going to be exciting!
