Be sure to come shop, dine and visit our galleries this holiday season in Hillsborough.  In Downtown, many merchants and restaurants have decorated their windows for the holidays, plus lots of our businesses around Hillsborough are having open houses and other holiday events throughout November and December.  Check out all of these events going on in November and December as part of our Hometown Holidays Festival.  On Sunday, December 2nd at 4:15 p.m. our Light Up The Night Hillsborough Holiday Parade will take place in Downtown, this year kick-off with the Running of the Elves.  Then on Sunday, December 16th come out to enjoy our 32nd Annual Hillsborough Candlelight Tour from 1 to 7 p.m.  Another holiday favorite is the Hillsborough Arts Council's Solstice Celebration Lantern Walk along Riverwalk in Downtown Hillsborough - this year December 21st.
