The holidays in Johnston County brings to mind my childhood and a Christmas filled with twinkling lights, the sounds of the season, and my breath fogging up the cold air as I eagerly awaited Santa at the end of the town Christmas parade.

In the spirit of getting the most out of the holidays, the Johnston County Visitors Bureau has completed for the second year in a row a list of holiday events happening in all of Johnston County's towns - parades, light shows, tree lightings, and other special celebrations.

For more information on each listing visit our events page here, a site provided by the JCVB that you can return to throughout the year for events and festivals happening each month around Johnston County.

I hope that you enjoy this magical time of year with family and friends and that these events give you the opportunity to spend time together celebrating the season.
