Enjoy a special holiday evening with family and friends in Downtown Historic Summerville this Thursday night. Summerville DREAM will host an evening of lights, music and theater throughout the downtown area.
The sounds of Christmas will be all around. Summerville’s Got Talent winners Shayla DiGregorio, the St. Paul’s Praise Team and the Hot Shots ukulele group are among the musical entertainment for the evening.
Dancers from Tip Tap Toe dance and Summerville Civic Ballet will perform, along with the Beech Hill Jugglers. Take a horse and carriage ride amid the sparkling holiday lights. Cinderella’s Carriage will pick-up at Single Smile Café on Hutchinson Square.
The highlight of the evening will be a storytelling tour of Downtown lead by Ebenezer Scrooge (aka Tim Lowry). The walking tour will be complemented by costumed actors portraying the people of London during the time of Charles Dickens. This event is limited to two tours of 40 people per tour.
