It’s that time of year again and I would imagine your family
is like mine where the calendar starts to fill up with holiday gatherings and
events quickly! We get so loaded up with
parties, office lunches and cookie exchanges that all I end up craving is some
slow paced family time to really enjoy the season. Living around the Wake
Forest area, I’ll get the chance to do just that. It begins on December 5 when Wake Forest will have
their annual lighting of the Christmas Tree in Centennial Plaza. The ceremony
will begin at 6pm and will have performances by local choirs and free horse and
carriage rides. Santa will be there too and will be offering complimentary
pictures in the town hall lobby (don’t forget to pick up a ticket to reserve a
time for your pictures at the halls entrance).
On Saturday, December 6, enjoy the Historic Home Tour sponsored by the
Historic Preservation Commission. It’s a self-guided tour through 10 different
beautifully decorated historic homes and will offer holiday music and horse
drawn buggy rides. Of course you can’t say you’ve truly enjoyed the holidays
without seeing a parade and Wake Forest offers just that. Scheduled for Saturday, December 13 and
beginning at 1pm, the annual Wake Forest Holiday parade shall commence! Rain or shine, enjoy over 100 beautifully
decorated floats created by local businesses and schools as they cruise along
the historic streets of downtown Wake Forest. The parade starts on the corner
of Elm Ave and S White Street and circles around ending on Elm Ave. and S
Brooks street. The events lasts till 3pm and ends with the big guy himself,
Santa making his debut! There’s parking for spectators all over the place
including specially marked parking lots in Southeasters Baptist Seminary. So grab something warm to drink at Wake
Forest Coffee Company, a quick lunch at ShortysFamous Hot Dogs (doesn’t
matter what you order, you can’t go wrong) or Over the Falls (seriously good Deli sandwiches) for the
family and then find a good spot along
to sit back, relax and enjoy. By the way, if case you haven’t heard or in case you know
you’ll never remember all of these dates, Wake Forest has their own app! Just
search for Town of Wake Forest in itunes and download their local app for
details on everything from information regarding park events, local job
postings, listing of business and oh yeah, all of the Christmas events
happening in town. If you live, do
business, or visit, it’s the go-to app to have to learn about everything going

When Peter is not helping one of his clients, he can be found volunteering his time running a charity Lobster Bingo event, cooking burgers at the local Fire Station to benefit the children in the community, delivering dictionaries to every 3rd grade student in Wake County with his Kiwanis Club, collecting school supplies for the needy, or ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. His favorite pastime, however, is spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons, Cole (12) and Camden (9 going on 20!).
