Mint Hill Residents,
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Mint Hill. Our Public Works team is working hard decorating Mint Hill. The wreaths are up, lights have been added to the Town Hall and the tree in anticipation of this week’s Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting.
We will kick off Saturday, December 2nd at 8:00 am with the Jingle Bell 5K Run/Walk at Veterans Park. This program supports our Volunteers in Policing Program. There is still time to sign up. https://www.minthillevents.org/jingle-all-the-way-5k
Later that afternoon, the 4th Annual Mint Hill Christmas Parade will take place at 5:30 pm in downtown Mint Hill. We are excited to have Major Scott Hall as our Parade Grand Marshal. Major Hall is retiring after 20 years of service to the Town of Mint Hill.
The parade will start at Bain School Road and travel south on Matthews-Mint Hill Road and end at the Mint Hill Library. We currently have over 1900 parade participants including floats, marching bands, school groups, churches and of course, Santa and his elf Trixie.
After the parade, please join us at Town Hall for food trucks and entertainment at the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. The tree comes from an undisclosed location in the mountains of North Carolina. This year’s tree is officially 19 ft tall and has over 6,000 lights. Putting it in the fountain gives it a much taller appearance. Following the tree lighting, Santa will be available for visits.
We would like to thank our sponsor Novant Health – Mint Hill Medical Center for their continued support of Mint Hill Events, Inc.
I hope to see you all at the festivities this weekend!
Let the holidays begin…
Mint Hill Mayor
