The Town of Taylorsville, Alexander County Government, local businesses, and individuals are partnering to once again bring a warm Hometown Christmas to the downtown area. A series of Yuletide events is planned on Thursdays through Dec. 21, as listed below.
For each date listed, music and entertainment are planned, with food truck vendors along the Courthouse Square area or at the municipal parking lot next to the Old 1913 Jail.

Free carriage rides by Carolina Carriage Co. will be held each evening (note: reservations are required, sign up at https://2023hometownchristmas.eventbrite.com/).
