With the uncertainty of this weekend’s weather forecast, the Town of Wilkesboro has scaled back the “Christmas in the Commons” event on Saturday. “We place great importance on the safety of attendees, vendors, and staff both during the event and traveling home,” said a town spokesperson in a press release.

At 6 p.m. in front of the Wilkes Heritage Museum, the inaugural lighting of the Heritage Square Christmas Tree will take place, with remarks by Mayor Mike Inscore, featuring the new holiday decorations in downtown Wilkesboro.

The music performance by the Todd Wright Quartet, kids activities, and special showing of “The Polar Express” have been cancelled, announced the town.

The Wilkes Heritage Museum Christmas open house is still 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Saturday, with tours, music, and refreshments offered throughout the day.

Santa will be at Sweet Smiles candy store from 1-4 p.m. Saturday.
