Wear your ugly Christmas sweater to 3rd Friday

Tomorrow is the next 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury. This month’s event is hosted indoors only — so that means no artists and crafters outside on the street — but there is still tons to do and see.

So don your ugliest sweater for a night of shopping, gallery shows, carriage rides and more.

This 3rd Friday coincides with the First Annual Holiday Horse & Carriage Rides hosted by The Acorn Market. This sold-out event is a great way to get in the holiday spirit, and see Downtown Salisbury is a whole new way. The ride features a half-mile loop that includes the Plaza.

Even if you didn’t get tickets, you can still enjoy seeing carriage rides taking place Downtown throughout the evening. Angello’s Unique Gifts will be in full gear for the Holidays, with a Huge Sale for the last minute items on your list, including free gift wrap.

You can even design your very own “Downtown Diva SBY” Holiday Gift Basket complete with your hand selected elegant piece from Kuhn’s Jewelers.

Dorman’s Christmas Tree Farm is back again this year, selling fresh Christmas Trees and wreaths in the wrought iron gate cut-through located near the bottom of the Plaza. Plus, check out the all new Mistletoe Market, right next door in the building formerly known as Parker Place.

Join Barefoot Baby Boutique and Minds in Motion Children’s Museum as they bring Christmas cheer to the Downtown Plaza. Come rock around a Christmas tree, ride a “reindeer,” sip some cider, watch elves paint ornaments, shop for kids toys and interact with a Minds in Motion kids’ exhibit.

Plus, a local artist will be on site taking orders for personalized wooden reindeers, perfect for holiday gifts.

The Salisbury University Art Galleries | Downtown Campus is hosting a unique event this 3rd Friday. Salisbury University is inviting all alumni to participate in a juried exhibition titled HOMECOMING.

All work submitted will be reviewed by Ginevra Shay, Artistic Director for The Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, and curator Rose Arcade.
