The Tobacco Farm Life Museum is excited to partner with the Town of Kenly and the Kenly Area Chamber of Commerce to usher in the holiday season with a full schedule of Christmas activities starting on December 2nd!
On Thursday, December 2nd at 7 pm the Town of Kenly presents the Kenly Christmas Parade. Returning after a hiatus last year due to the pandemic, the parade route winds its way through downtown Kenly. Come out and watch the parade to get into the holiday spirit! Keep a special eye out for the Museum’s float!
On Friday, December 3rd the Tobacco Farm Life Museum will present a special walk through of our 2021 Christmas Village from 6 to 8 pm, with new exhibits and an even larger collection of holiday lights and decorations on display. This event began last year as a drive through alternative to our former Candlelight Tour. This year the drive through will continue, but the first night will be a special, free walk-through night for our community. In addition to the lights, a food truck will be on site as well as entertainment.
