A weekend of holiday festivities is ahead, with Christmas parades, tree lightings, music and visits from St. Nick.
The Town of Hillsville will celebrate the Christmas season with its annual tree lighting and Christmas parade on Dec. 3.
The festivities will start at 5 p.m. with stocking stuffing along North Main Street. The first 300 children to check in at town hall will receive a free stocking to get stuffed by local merchants and those set up along the street. Stocking stuffing will last until 6 p.m.
