Deck the halls with lots of fun, because there’s always something phenomenal waiting just around the corner, in Southeastern North Carolina! Having an ideal location between both Brunswick County and downtown Wilmington, Brunswick Forest is keen on keeping you up to date with all the action in your local area. December is a big time for many people due to Christmas, Hanukkah and the approaching new year. With so much happening, there’s always something fun going on to take note of!

Leland is one of the fastest growing areas in the Southeast, and likewise has become full of fun holiday events that you can check out on your own, or with family and friends! What better way to celebrate the magic of the holidays than catching a Christmas movie outside in the open air? Founder’s Park in Leland, just minutes away from Brunswick Forest, will be hosting a Christmas movie double feature! Grab a blanket, get cozy and enjoy the evening atmosphere, as Will Farrell’s Elf will kick off the evening. This will be followed by the classic Tim Burton film, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Concessions will be available during the event!

Movie in the Park Christmas Double Feature:

People always tell you, don’t forget to leave some cookies and milk for Santa. Well, for these next two events, Santa is saving a special spot at the table just for you! Little ones can join Santa himself for breakfast at Leland Cultural Arts Center, and cookies the day after! There will also be arts, crafts, story time and pictures with Santa as well.

Breakfast with Santa:

Cookies with Santa:

How about a little holiday entertainment, Thalian style? Historic Thalian Hall, in downtown Wilmington, will also be showing their version of the holiday comedy Elf but live on stage! Join the journey of Buddy the Elf as he hunts for his identity in normal society, far from Santa’s workshop! It’s a heartwarming tale that everyone can enjoy.

Elf the Musical:

Celebrate the holidays with family and friends, colonial Carolina style! It’s the Merry Little Christmas Festival at Poplar Grove Plantation. Twinkling arts, crafts and gifts will be on display in the bazaar, while kids are free to run around and play amongst the grounds. Kids can also visit the Snow Queen and Santa Claus! There will be bonfires blazing for toasting marshmallows, candlelight tours of the plantation grounds and many more exquisite activities. There will even be a letter writing station for the little ones to send their Christmas wishes to the North Pole.

A Merry Little Christmas Festival:

Brunswick Forest implores you to add a little seasonal entertainment to your schedule, as it offers a great chance to experience the cultural of greater Wilmington and the surrounding areas! Be sure to see at least one of these events before the year is out!
