Friday is the night for Christmas in Funkstown

December 05, 2011|Susie Hoffman | Around Funkstown

It's beginning to looka lot like Christmas  — a whole lot like Christmas in Funkstown.

The stores are festive and homes are festooned with the season and residents are waiting — waiting on Santa's arrival in less than three weeks, and waiting for Olde Tyme Christmas in a few short days.  

It all takes place Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. in Funkstown.

Town residents are reminded to get their candles in place by 6 p.m.

Festivities will be held throughout town.

Treats and warm beverages will be available in Town Hall. There will be activities for children, as well as a visit from Santa.  

Narrated historic hayrides will depart from Town Hall. Merchants will be decorated and open to help with holiday shopping. Be sure to stop by the newest business, The Coffee Station, which offers antiques, books and other gift ideas.  

Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co. will hold a roast beef dinner.

Cookie and bake sale

St. Andrew's United Methodist Church on Maryland Avenue will hold its cookie and bake sale Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
