Western Avenue Baptist Church hosted its third annual “An Avenue Christmas” on Friday evening.
A live brass band played treasured Christmas songs, while families and friends went “ice” skating, took a horse-drawn carriage ride, and roasted marshmallows over the fire pits.
There was plenty of hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies, crafts for children, and an artisan market.
The highlight of the evening was the live nativity and musical presentation.
The event continues Saturday, December 4, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $5 per person. Children under two for free. Western Avenue Baptist is located at 1206 Museum Road in Statesville.
