Holiday in the Park: A holly jolly Christmas drive-thru with Chatham County Parks and Recreation

Pittsboro, NC – The Chatham County community is invited to get into the Christmas spirit with the Chatham County Parks and Recreation Department’s 2nd annual Holiday in the Park event on Friday, December 11 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Northeast District Park. Modified due to COVID-19, this year’s event will take place as a holly jolly drive-thru, where participants will be asked to stay in their cars while in attendance.

During Holiday in the Park, families can collect an ornament kit to decorate at home, reindeer food, and candy canes, while supplies last. Participants are encouraged to write a letter to Santa Claus ahead of time. Children will be able to hand their letters to Santa himself and wave at him through their car window.

“We are excited to continue to provide recreational activities and special events to allow Chatham County families the opportunity to enjoy fun times while also maintaining safety during the pandemic,” said Chatham County Parks and Recreation Director Tracy Burnett.
