Knightdale Christmas on First Avenue Expands for 2018

The annual holiday tradition, Knightdale Christmas on First Avenue, will be returning to Knightdale Station Park to ring in the yuletide spirit and the good tidings of the season starting on Friday, November 30 from 6-8 p.m. for the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony with the Christmas Parade following through downtown Knightdale the following afternoon (Saturday), December 1 with a 2:00 p.m. start.

The tradition that has become Knightdale Christmas on First Avenue will no doubt once again see the community out in full force showing their holiday spirit, as the Tree Lighting Ceremony will have tons of fun filled activities not only for the kids, but for the entire family to enjoy. The youngsters in attendance will have plenty to do, including “Letters to Santa,” visiting and taking pictures with Mrs. Claus and the elves, Christmas themed games and activities, music, live performances, and even a visit from the one and only Santa Claus himself. At the conclusion of the festivities on day one of Knightdale Christmas on First Avenue, the beautiful Christmas tree that sits at Knightdale Station Park. Food trucks will also be on site at the ceremony, serving up food, beverages, and goodies throughout the evening.

This year, the Town of Knightdale will once again add a new “wrinkle” to the holiday traditions local residents have come to love so much, as the weekend festivities on Thursday, November 29, 2018 from 6pm-8pm at Knightdale Station Park at the Holiday Fair and Music Celebration.  There will as always be all types of different vendors selling Christmas items, a live band playing Christmas music and food trucks.

After night one of Knightdale Christmas on First Avenue gets everybody in the mood, the following day, community dignitaries, businesses, and yes, Santa himself will make a return as a part of the Christmas Parade. As was the case last year, the parade route will start at Knightdale Elementary School and end at Knightdale Station Park. Once again, there will be food trucks located at First Avenue and Main Street along the Parade route to curb your hunger as you show support for the passing by floats.
