Christmas Festival of the Arts will be Dec. 9


Clarendon County Community Development Corp. is planning an exciting Christmas Festival of the Arts at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9, at Weldon Auditorium, Manning.

The event will feature local professional dance groups from Clarendon County and surrounding areas as well as guest choirs. Holiday music will be performed by the youth.

Youth are also being sought to participate in the Visual Arts Showcase that evening. To include art in the showcase, stop by the office at 210 S. Church St., Manning, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and pick up a visual arts entry form. The deadline to submit forms has been extended to Nov. 15 as some teachers need more time to prepare their students. If the office is closed, use the drop box to return the entry form.

Admission to the festival is $5 for everyone.
