Beary Merry Christmas in New Bern begins on Friday, November 29 with “Light Up the Season,” an annual family event to welcome Santa to his Santa House and illuminate Bear Plaza with hundreds of lights. This seasonal party offers holiday music, dancing and crafts for kids. “Bernie’s Beary Merry Mistletoe March” will be held December 14 from 1:30-4:30 pm, as families march through the streets to the New Bern Civic Theatre to view the holiday movie “The Polar Express.” The forecast for December 15 is “SNOW,” when Craven Street is transformed into a winter wonderland. From 1-4 pm all can enjoy a day of sledding and shopping. The celebration continues throughout the month as Beary Merry Christmas ushers in the holidays with events such as the Christmas Parade, Flotilla, Tryon Palace Candlelight Tours, Bear Trolley Tours and much more!
