What to Do in Greenville During the Holiday Season

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Furman chapter.

And just like that, the leaves begin to fall, and the peppermint chocolate mochas are back. It’s our favorite season again, and there is so much to do! Greenville is filled with holiday activities from Santa’s sleigh rides to the 2019 Festival of trees to plays like the Dickens A Christmas Carol. There’s a lot going on, so here are a couple of the bigger events within 20 minutes of Furman:

Ice skating in South Carolina? It doesn’t sound possible, but on December 26th, Greenville is dedicating their beloved Bon Secours Wellness Arena for a day of ice skating, and it only costs $3 to $8! And it gets better. If you bring 5 canned goods (to donate to STAGE partners, Loaves and Fishes and Habitat for Humanity) you get free skate rentals. Highly recommend for an after Christmas family or friend outing! 

Do you love hockey? Do you love ugly sweaters? Perfect! Head out to Swamp Rabbit’s ugly sweater night on December 28th at 6:00 pm to watch hockey and enter your ugly sweater into a contest to win discounted tickets to their next game! 

If sports aren’t your thing, then Pelzer Old Fashioned Christmas Market might be! From face painting to handmade jewelry to birdhouses to baked goods, this market has just about everything old fashioned. On November 23rd from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm this market will take place on Lebby Street Pelzer SC. 

Don’t miss out on these activities this holiday season!
