High Point University will once again welcome families to a complimentary Christmas Drive celebration to enjoy the sights and sounds of the holiday season. Families, friends and neighbors are invited to join in the traditions at the drive-through event from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 19 through Saturday, Jan. 1.
This is a fun, festive way for families to enjoy the holiday decorations and sounds of the season from the comfort of their vehicles.
This year’s drive has expanded to include new decorations and campus facilities. Guests will enter at the University Parkway entrance and exit at Panther Drive onto Lexington Avenue by the new Nido and Mariana Qubein Arena and Conference Center. Located next to the new facility is the state’s tallest Christmas tree at 58 feet.
Throughout campus, families can enjoy views of more than 100,000 Christmas lights, a life-size Nativity scene, 206 nutcrackers and other holiday decorations. Additional new features include more animals and shepherds in the Nativity scene, as well as ornaments that are 10-feet tall, and giant wreaths and garland decorating Qubein Center.
