Believe! The Onancock Christmas Driving Tour
December 12 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Begins at HOS- Historic Onancock School and Community Center at 6 College Avenue. Santa and Elfie on one of Onancock Volunteer Fire Department’s finest trucks, lead the tour up College Ave to Liberty Street. The tour turns right onto Liberty and then turns left onto Sturgis St at the signpost. Quickly you will come to Santa’s workshop with Santa and Mrs Claus and elves. Keep an eye out for Rudolf at the Reindeer Barn! Proceed up Sturgis to the live Nativity and Bethlehem Inn. From there journey past Merry Lane’s Winter Wonderland. Turn right onto to Ames Street to head for Candy Land next where Sugar Plum Fairy and elves will be handing out candy canes. There will be giant-sized candy everywhere, but no tasting! Toy Land is just down the street where the hosts will have had an early visit from Santa! There you will see Raggedy Ann and Andy surrounded by a ton of toys. Proceed down Ames to see the hand-painted & embellished Nut Crackers and Toy Soldiers. The tour continues across the Ames Street bridge lit by luminaries. Just after the bridge on the left is the beautiful, huge Onancock Christmas tree. End the tour at the corner of Ames and Market Streets where Elfie will receive and post children’s letters to Santa in the North Pole Express Mailbox.
On December 15, a winner will be picked at random from the letters in the Mailbox. Letters must have a return address to be eligible.
