Timmonsville Christmas Festival this weekend

TIMMONSVILLE – The Annual Timmonsville Christmas Festival kicks off with the Timmonsville Christmas Festival Beauty Pageant on Dec. 3. The festival will continue Friday, Dec. 4, and Saturday, Dec. 5. The pageant will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Timmonsville High School Gymnasium. On Friday, hundreds of luminaries will create the festive atmosphere for the lighting of the town tree at 6 p.m. on Main Street.

The Christmas parade will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday. Vendors will open at 9 a.m. The Timmonsville Grand Privy Race (AKA an outhouse) will be raced on Main Street following the parade. This never-before-seen outhouse race in South Carolina, exclusive to Timmonsville, will start at noon Saturday. There are a few spots in the race.

The race will be followed by the Ugly Privy Princess Pageant – a wacky, tacky non-beauty contest. Live entertainment begins at 2 p.m. Saturday, featuring the Fabulous Clay Brown and his band as well as local performers. The day also will be filled with arts-and-crafts vendors, food vendors, Kids’ Corner activities, and a photo booth with Santa.
