The Town of Apex partners with local artist Lewis Wilson to design a limited edition series of ornaments celebrating all the landmarks you love around town.
How to Order:
- Order online and pick up at the Halle Cultural Arts Center, 237 N. Salem Street on:
- Tuesday, December 15th (9:30 am - 5:30 pm)
- Monday, December 21st (9:30 am - 5:30 pm)
At this time, we are not able to ship ornaments - they must be picked up from the Halle.
The original artwork is printed onto a 4.5" x 3.25" piece of poplar wood, with ribbon attached.
Because each ornament is handmade, there will be a limited supply of 200 each year. Orders for past year ornaments are available while supplies last.
2020 Ornament - Apex Christmas Parade
In a year that we have to press pause on many traditions... the 2020 Apex Ornament brings you a snapshot in time when we could celebrate the spirit of the holidays together. Our parade has kicked off the holiday season each year for the past few decades. Apex’s parade is unique, as one of only a few in the area held at night. We look forward to the years to come, when once again spectators will line the sidewalks, wave at passing antique cars, delight at the bright lights twinkling through downtown Apex, and enjoy the sights and sounds of local marching bands, dance companies, cheer squads, martial arts schools, jump rope teams, and more!
2019 Ornament - Downtown Apex
This year’s ornament features a snowy morning in downtown Apex. Historic downtown Apex formed around the turn of the 20th century. In 1911, many of the 100 block buildings, then constructed of old wood frame, were destroyed in a fire. By 1913, many buildings were rebuilt using pressed brick, giving downtown Apex the character it showcases today.
2018 Ornament - The Halle
The 2018 ornament features the Halle Cultural Arts Center, which celebrated the 10th anniversary of its grand reopening in 2008. The Halle was built in 1912 in the heart of the downtown Historic District, and served as Apex’s very first Town Hall. It is currently a modern facility that hosts exhibitions, musicals, dances, plays, receptions, meetings, fundraisers, and other celebrations.
