The Carolina Mall is Kicking Off the Holiday Season with The Festive Five Event

Oct 17, 2018 01:42PM ● By Melanie Heisinger
Recently, the Carolina Mall announced The Festive Five, a five night event to kick off the holiday season featuring choirs, musicians, dance groups and more. The week begins on November 12th, each night hosting different performances. 

Performances will be held throughout the week inside the mall and anyone can vote for their favorite one. Whoever receives the most votes will win the "2018 Festive Five" award, as well as be announced as the Festive Favorite. 

We got in touch with Marketing Manager for the Carolina Mall, Tyler Mckee, to learn more about this festive event.

How did the Festive Five event get started? What inspired it? 

The event got started due to the number of performers requesting opportunities to perform in the Carolina Mall during the holidays. Starting last year, we decided to create an event featuring local talent to kick off the holiday season.

What's something we should look forward to?

The Carolina Mall has a packed schedule with performances ranging from dance groups to a Swing Band. Last year’s Festive Favorite, Motion Dance Studio, will be performing again this year. They put on a great performance last year showcasing the talent of their young dancers.

Can anyone enter?

Anyone that would like to perform in the Mall can enter to participate. The performance must be holiday themed and can range from dance to music to theatre and anywhere in-between. 

What's been your most memorable moment so far?

The event is still relatively new so it’s hard to have a most memorable moment. It’s great to have so many performance groups throughout the community come together to spread holiday cheer and showcase their talent. It’s a great way to kick off the holiday season!

Anything else we should know about?

The community can vote for Concord’s Festive Favorite by visiting Voting opens November 12th and will remain open through November 18th. The winner will be announced in a special Facebook Live event and awarded the 2018 Festive Five trophy.
Santa Claus will be arriving at the Carolina Mall the following week! He arrives on Friday, November 23rd.

Does the mall host any other events?

We host several other events that occur throughout the year which engage, entertain and inspire the community. Whether you are looking to participate in an event or seeking family friendly activities in the community, we hope you will explore all that is happening at the Carolina Mall. Our next event, Color for a Cause, which is scheduled in March is a live coloring contest and shopping event that raises money and awareness for local organizations.
