Lights are up for the holiday edition of Summerville’s Third Thursday event

Lights shine on Hutchinson Square during the holiday season.

The halls are fully decked in the historic downtown Summerville district in time for the monthly Third Thursday event, when Hutchinson Square comes to life with a local street party.

During the event, traffic is closed off from Little Main Street, and Short Central is lined with booths and live music. For the holiday edition, there will be plenty of decorations to marvel at and Tim Lowry, a local storyteller, will be holding a walking tour while telling the story of “A Christmas Carol.”

There are often specials going on throughout the local shops during the event, which makes it the perfect time do some gift shopping.

When: 5-8 p.m. Thursday

Where: Downtown Summerville

Price: Free to attend, storytelling walking tour is $15
