A look back at "Jingle on Main" in 2011


Santa came to Roxboro on Thursday, December 8, 2011 to "Jingle on Main". 

After a tree lighting and carolling by the Community Choir at Merritt Commons it was off to the Kirby Cultural Arts Complex for tours, art, photos with Santa at Carver Agency and "The Polar Express" being shown in the Kirby Theater.

On their walk to the Kirby, guest's paths were lit by luminaries as part of a fundraiser for the Arts Endowment at Piedmont Community College.  Over $1,000 was raised in the first year.  Thank you to all who participated. Event Photo Here!
