Have you ever wanted to know more about what this event is, exactly? Here we go:
Join us for a wonderful time in Downtown Rocky Mount with lights, decorations, vendors, food, crafts, fun and more!
Not sure where to start? Park at Pell Avenue Parking Lot and let the TNT Cool Bus Shuttle you through town! We will have stops at the North Pole Train Depot, and down by Claiborne behind The Whole Bean Coffee House running non-stop from 5:00pm until 9:00pm all night long. As always, the shuttle is FREE!
Take your kids to the Train Depot that will be transformed in to the North Pole for the night! You will find inflatables for the kids to jump on, crafts, games and prizes inside… even a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, all FREE!!!
Are you looking for some good old traditional Christmas fun? Head on down to the Farmer’s Market for music, dancing and cheer! “The Friday Night Dance Band” will be playing, starting with a special appearance from our friends from Christian Heritage Academy at 5:30pm. All music is FREE and open to the public!
Do you like NASCAR just as much as Christmas?! Stop by Virginia Office Supply to meet NASCAR drivers Brad Foy and Josh Reeves! Autographs and Photos will be available from 6:30p-7:30p, for FREE!
Have you ever wanted to ride in a horse drawn carriage? Walk over to the Early Inn for their Open House! The horses have been moved over there to show you the best of the Grove, with a fire pit, hot chocolate, eggnog and more, and for FREE you can ride around the Inn to see the Christmas decorations all around!
Merry Christmas from TNT, and the amazing team at Community Partnership, who have given so much time and energy to make this night shine as bright as possible.
This year, as one of our "Give Back" Opportunities, TNT is partnering with the Franklin County Sheriff's Department Operation Christmas Tree to help collect non-perishable items and toys to gift to nearly 40 Franklin County families that need a little extra help this holiday season. Each family will receive enough supplies for 2 hot meals during the Christmas weekend, and clothing and gifts specific to every child in each household.
If you haven't had a chance to pick who you will give a little extra to this Christmas, just bring your canned goods and/or toys to the TNT Shuttle stop on Claiborne Avenue any time during the event. We will be glad to collect anything you would like to contribute, and hand it directly over to our local Sheriff's Department.

If you don't have time to get your donations together before Friday, no need to worry: stay tuned to our FaceBook next week where we announce other opportunities to give back even more!
