Down East Holiday Show Is Nov. 5-8

Last year, 12,500 shoppers set a new attendance record for the Down East Holiday Show, which is now in its fourteenth year. PCC Foundation officials are hoping to set a new mark later this week as they raise funds for student scholarships and educational activities at the college.

A holiday tradition returns to Greenville this week, when the 2015 PCC Foundation Down East Holiday Show opens with a special VIP shopping event Thursday.
