Downtown Goldsboro gets into the holiday spirit. The city held its annual Downtown Lights Up celebration Tuesday evening, but the event looked a little different this year. Typically, thousands would have crowded into the Center Street area to watch the downtown light up for the holiday season. However, due to the pandemic, the city took the Downtown Lights Up event online for a virtual celebration. The celebrations filmed inside the Paramount Theatre was streamed across the city’s social media pages.
Also, be sure to bring the kids to visit Santa’s Post Office in Downtown Goldsboro, crafted exclusively by Leonard Buildings. Powered by McDonald’s of Goldsboro, Santa’s Post Office is located at the south end of Center Street. Drop off your letters for jolly ol’ St. Nick and then tune in each weekday morning to FM 98.3 WGBR where Jeff Farrow will be reading some of those letters through December 22nd.
