Holly Days on the Hill Nov. 24 - Jan 5

The Richmond Hill Bryan County Chamber of Commerce presents Holly Days on the Hill which runs from Small Business Saturday – Nov. 24th (always the Saturday after Thanksgiving) through Bring One for the Chipper, Jan. 5th.

Holly Days on the Hill is a compilation of events and activities in Richmond Hill, beginning with Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24th and concluding with Bring One for the Chipper on Jan. 5th which is the City of Richmond Hill’s Christmas tree recycling program and a myriad of other holiday-related activities – like the Chili Cook-Off, Christmas Parade, Pictures with Santa and much more! For the most current listing of all the holiday-related fun please go to https://www.facebook.com/HollyDaysOnTheHill

The RHBC Chamber of Commerce encourages people to shop the “Hill” for a unique Coastal Christmas as there’s no need to shop out of town this holiday season; start or perhaps finish your holiday shopping at home in the “Hill” where you’ll find great values, great merchants and great times.

Richmond Hill is “home” to many locally-owned, small businesses featuring everything from original art-work, clothing, jewelry and more great gifts that you won’t find anywhere else. Be sure to shop, play and dine local this holiday season….and beyond.
