Christmas tree sale, car show, Merino’s at the Mill

bena medlock "weekend" bugIf you were thinking of spending the weekend at home relaxing on the sofa, we have found two dozen reasons for you to change your plan. The weekend calendar brings a pre-holiday array of events like a fall evening twilight run, an opportunity to be a soldier for a day, a “light the night” event at the zoo and a visit from Santa. Locals can have the privilege of buying a tree chopped down by a Cornelius fireman or enjoy a barbeque meal prepared by a local boy scout. For our car, shopping and Christmas enthusiasts, we have the Charlotte Auto Show, a holiday shopping extravaganza at Merino’s at The Mill and The Southern Christmas Show. We also have film, theater performances and a comedy act in store. Read on for details about these events and information about others. Continue Reading
