November 24, 2018Elizabeth Estelzenmuller
Located right outside of our Brunswick Forest community, the Leland Cultural Arts Center provides a vibrant hub for the arts in Brunswick County and surrounding areas. It is unlike any other facility in the region, with courses/programs in a multitude of art forms including pottery, theater, painting, jewelry making, literary arts, healing arts, and more. The Center includes a gallery, pottery studio, multipurpose studio, painting/drawing studio, dance studio, classroom, and a performing arts space capable of hosting community theater productions, musical performances, and events.
Hosting several upcoming events for the holiday season, LCAC stays busy with their specialty events, cultural arts classes, fitness & wellness opportunities, youth art programs, as well as a variety of other workshops and events. Let’s check out what their latest happening’s are!
North Carolina Christmas Festival & Parade:
Saturday, December 1st
Presented by Unity Group of North Brunswick and the Town of Leland
This event is a new version of the NC Christmas Parade and the Leland Tree Lighting, with some changes and additions we think you’re going to love! The parade will take place at night, and will feature lighted vehicles that will lead Santa and Mrs. Claus to Town Hall, where they will light the Leland tree and visit with all the little boys and girls in Santa’s Workshop. The Christmas Festival will take place in Leland Municipal Park before, during and after the parade, and will bring us around the globe with Christmas Around The World and other holiday vendors. The fun starts at 4:00 and continues throughout the evening. Please visit the website below for details, we can’t wait to see you there!
