Default Best day for Southern Christmas Show??

Is there any specific day when the crowds are smaller at the Southern Christmas Show? I have arthritis in my hips and back and really can't stand around a lot waiting to get through a crowd to see things. Walking is fine, it's the standing that gets me. I am available to go during the week through the day, but was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is any day that might be best. Wednesday is out for me, though.

Thanks!

Usually any day between Monday and Thursday are better (during the day when most people are at work and skip Fridays because many people are either off or take the day off to go). We took off 1/2 day during the week and went to the Southern Women's show this year and there wasn't hardly anyone there...it was SO nice. Check their calendar to see what they have going on during the different week days.

I don't even bother trying to go on the weekends for these things - just way too many people.

By the way, I saw somewhere that Harris Teeter had tickets for $7.50 (and for those who can go in the evening...you get like $4 off the ticket price if you go after 5 or 6 but I can't remember where I saw it). Save a buck, buy your ticket on line (at least 24 hours in advance).

Also make sure to check for vendor coupons at Southern Christmas Show - Southern Christmas Show.

Thanks! I knew about the Harris Teeter discount, but not the evening one.

I'm having second thoughts, though, because I didn't realize it also costs $6 to park. I think spending $13.50 even before you get in the door is a bit pricey. I'll have to think about it. I'll be going by myself so not like we can share the parking fee.

Question for any one who has been this year......did you use any of these coupons? Which ones are worth printing?

I saw that about parking too and on top of the admission price, it seems ridiculous. I used to make soap and sell at Christmas craft shows and it seems to me that there should be no admission price, or at least it should not be more than two or three dollars, and the vendors should pay a little more for their booths to make up the difference. We are after all there to buy from them. The malls don't charge us to get in the door, do they?

OOPS, sorry, I just did a search on the show and this thread popped up, I didn't notice until now how old it was.
