Christmas celebrations happening around the east this weekend

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Christmas celebrations are happening in Morehead City.

The 4th Annual Christmas Artwalk is downtown Friday. It's free from 4 to 7 and you can pick up a map at any participating gallery.
     
If you're not into the art, the annual tree lighting is tonight at Katherine Davis Park. Santa and Mrs. Claus will get there around five and the tree will be lit at six. It's expected to be plenty of fun with Christmas carols and an ice skating rink.

And in Greenville, at the Five Points Plaza, the city's Christmas tree will be lit.
     
Enjoy festive holiday music, a holiday reading, snacks, and hot chocolate from 5:30 until seven. People are encouraged to bring a gift for local charities.
     
And Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive on the Greenville Jolly Trolly direct from the North Pole at 6 p.m. They'll be available for photos.

This weekend, there's a full line-up of Christmas parades in the east. And you just might spot some of the 9 On Your Side crew at some.
