A range of holiday plans are kicking into full gear in downtown Morehead City complete with a Christmas Artwalk, tree lighting, visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus and the popular Chowder and Cheer Crawl.

Art lovers can kick off their holiday celebration from 4-7pm on Friday, Dec. 4 with the annual Morehead City Christmas Artwalk that includes downtown Morehead City galleries as well as participating businesses and restaurants. Look for special deals and discounts throughout the evening.

The Morehead City tree lighting ceremony will be held at 6pm at centrally-located Katherine Davis Park. Expect holiday carols and hot chocolate while waiting for the big moment.

On Saturday, Dec. 5, the annual Chowder and Cheer Crawl takes place from 1-5pm. Vote for your favorite chowder, soup, chili or gumbo. In addition to downtown eateries, restaurants that aren’t located right in the downtown district will be serving samples at participating shops and art galleries. Tickets are $20 per person and will be available in advance by calling the Downtown Morehead City Revitalization Association at 252-808-0440.

At 4:30pm on Saturday, Dec. 5, join Santa and Mrs. Claus at Jaycee Park for Christmas carols and visiting. Then at 5:30 pm, the colorful Christmas Flotilla will cruise down the Morehead waterfront in a delightful holiday tradition.
