The Cool Spring Downtown District (CSDD) have scheduled their traditional and new holiday decor and interactive features to be installed in multiple spaces around the district’s footprint on or around Nov. 15, 2023.
“Our downtown residents, visitors and business owners can expect to find quite an array of magical ‘District Winterscapes,’ as we’re calling them, spread throughout downtown this holiday season,” CSDD’s CEO Bianca Shoneman shared in a press release.
“We’re especially excited to be one of the first places in the state to welcome three augmented reality (AR) stations, allowing visitors to engage on the street level with AR impressions, creating memories through science and digital art,” Shoneman elaborated in a press release.
Also new this year, CSDD is welcoming the immersive art of Robin Vuchnich, who will use projection mapping to illuminate the Self-Help building with holiday winterscapes.
According to CSDD, their 11 District Winterscapes* will include the following:
Twenty-Two-Foot Carolina Fir Holiday Tree
Ten-Foot Giant Ornament Stack
Augmented Reality Station A: “Jack Frost”
Six-Foot Bulb C7 Light-Up String Lights
Six-Foot by Sixteen-Foot Light-Up JOY Lettering
Augmented Reality Station B: “Hanging with My Gnomes”
Augmented Reality Station C: “For the Trees”
Letters to Santa
Holiday Lights on Burgess Street
*Note the locations of these 11 District Winterscapes may change at any given time.
Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks and Recreation’s crew has already begun hanging the traditional holiday wreaths along downtown’s streets.
“Positioning our arts and entertainment district as a vibrant center of artistic, cultural, civic and commercial activity means our CSDD team is always exploring new ways to entice visitors here,” Shoneman explained in a press release, “...and this year, thanks to several generous sponsors of our District Winterscapes, we’re giving folks even more reasons to celebrate the season in Downtown Fayetteville.”
CSDD acknowledges the following sponsors for the roles they have played in helping to financially support their District Winterscapes: Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks and Recreation, Fayetteville Public Works Commission, Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County, Cape Fear Valley Health, Self-Help Credit Union, City Center Gallery & Books, A Bit of Carolina, and Turner Lane.
