Events for the First Half of December 2019

December 2019 will be chock full of fun and exciting events for the whole family. The communities in and around Rock Hill will be bustling with Christmas cheer for the whole month of December, so the Rock Hill Coca-Cola Bottling Company thought we’d offer a glimpse at a few of the notable events for just the first two weeks of December 2019. If you can handle all that excitement and aren’t too tired for the end of the month activities, check back in a couple of weeks for more information.


Let’s start with the big one. Rock Hill’s ChristmasVille will run from December 5th through December 8th. If you can imagine a holiday event, it’s probably going to happen during ChristmasVille. With over 70 events, from horse drawn carriage rides to gingerbread and ornament contests to an ice skating rink, Rock Hill is ringing in the season with high style!
