Spirit of Christmas
Join the New Castle Presbyterian Church and the City of Historic New Castle on Saturday, December 14, for the 13th annual celebration of the Spirit of Christmas.
The all-day event, free to the public, is sponsored by the New Castle Presbyterian Church and the New Castle Visitors' Bureau. Activities include tours of many historic homes decorated for the season, museum tours, events at the New Castle Court House (part of the First State National Monument) and musical performances and entertainment throughout the town.
If you are looking for holiday gifts and food, the New Castle Presbyterian Church will hold an all-day sale of crafts, used books, homemade soups and breads, and gift items - including the always popular "Look What $20 Will Buy" table.
The festivities conclude at 5:00 p.m., with the town's annual tree lighting ceremony and caroling in the Market Square.
Shops and restaurants throughout Olde New Castle will be open as well, welcoming visitors with special discounts.
Proceeds generated by the New Castle Presbyterian Church will be donated to support the Friendship House, Inc. of Wilmington, Delaware, ministry to the homeless.
For additional information, please contact the New Castle Presbyterian Church at (302) 328-3279. Or, visit our Facebook page for regular updates.
Stroll the brick sidewalks, explore historic museums, do some shopping in our boutiques and grab a bite to eat in one of our quaint restaurants or cafes. We look forward to seeing you!
