Sounds of Christmas

Badin Baptist Church will be filled with sounds of Christmas music performed by Charlotte Festive Brass at 4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are available through Eventbrite or at Loafers and Legends on Falls Road.

The 10-piece ensemble is led by Albemarle native David Mills, a member of the Albemarle High Class of 1968.

Tree Lighting

The traditional lighting of the Badin Christmas tree is scheduled for Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. on the Village Green, but Badin Elementary kindergarten students will not perform as a group due to Covid-19 concerns.

Better Badin, Inc. will deliver treat bags to the kindergarten classes earlier in the day.
Everyone is invited to attend the ceremony and join in singing carols before the lighting of the tree.

Sweet Potato Pie

The all-girl band of North Carolinians will perform at 6 p.m. Dec. 11 at Badin Baptist Church.

The group has been entertaining audiences for two decades with their special blend of Americana, bluegrass, classic country and gospel.

The musicians first appeared in Badin in 2019 as part of the Badin Concert Series.

Better Badin, Inc. is pleased to bring the Pie back for an encore.

Tickets are available through Eventbrite or from Better Badin members for $15.
