Posted on December 20, 2013.

HPU Community Christmas 2013 2HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 20, 2013 – High Point University was full of holiday cheer during the third annual Community Christmas event. A record 10,000 people attended the two night holiday celebration.

Guests arrived to hot chocolate, cookies, bouncing castles and live entertainers on the promenade before listening to music from local choirs in the Hayworth Chapel and hearing stories from Santa’s Woodsman.

“This is like playing basketball with your big brother,” said Greg Milton, music director for the High Point Central choir. “The students are excited to be here at HPU, and to be able to sing this wonderful Christmas music for the community.”

Guests then took horse-drawn carriage rides to the Wanek Center, where they were treated to snow falling, Christmas movies, the Holly Jolly Hot Dog Stand, and of course Santa who gave gifts to every child.

Dates for the fourth annual Community Christmas event have already been set for Dec. 17 – 18, 2014.
