HAMLET — All four members of the Barbershop Quartet stood by Saturday night in the passenger lobby of the Hamlet Depot.

The group about to being their performance in front of a few dozen individuals as part of the seventh annual Old Fashioned Christmas. In the railroad history-rich city of Hamlet, the performers had two general options. First, they could go start off with something that stayed within the holiday theme. Second, they could give a property red-hat tip to the city’s forefathers.

“I’ve Been Workin’ On the Railroad” was their collective choice to start off the evening, which later continued at Cafe on Main. Turns out it was the right choice to kick off the second night of the yearly Christmas celebration on Main Street.

Outside, dozens gathered to watch performances of young members of the Bold Moves Dance Company while horse-and-buggy rides, with Clydesdales at the front, traveled the main thoroughfare in between a miniature train ride for children and adults.

Upstairs in the Rotunda, E. Gale Buck was scheduled to read “The Magic of Christmas.”
