Highly Anticipated Shopping and More at HCA’s Candy Cane Lane Holiday Market
Harrells Christian Academy will once again transform its Foundation Center into a fabulous marketplace wonderland for the school’s 4th annual Candy Cane Lane Holiday Market on Nov. 16-18, the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Featuring over 40 regional and national exhibitors carrying high end accessories, home decor, clothing and unique gift items, this event raises funds for HCA programs and mission while also providing a signature Christmas tradition.
New and returning elements of this special event will include the Old Fashioned Christmas Cottage gingerbread house decorating contest, with all entries displayed at Candy Cane Lane. On Friday before the market opens, a special Preview Party offers a sneak peek at the market for a less-congested shopping experience. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres from Matthew Register of Southern Smoke BBQ and live music by Chad Johnson and Friends.
On Friday night and Saturday, general admission ticket holders can pass through the giant candy canes on the lawn of the HCA Foundation Center and spend as long as they like browsing and enjoying great shopping, great food by New Deli of Fayetteville and Something Good food truck of Warsaw, hourly vendor raffles, and more. On Saturday from 9 a.m. – noon, photographer CharlesAnna Williams of Clinton will be on hand for professional photos as children visit with Santa. At no charge, Williams will forward each child’s picture by email for reproduction as parents desire.
For months, PTO volunteers and school staff have worked to bring Candy Cane Lane to life again this year. Local businesses have generously sponsored the event in support of HCA’s mission for educational and spiritual excellence. Vendors from as far away as Juneau, Alaska are bringing handcrafted gifts to our corner of southeastern Carolina.
