The Chili Country Christmas at the We Piddle Around Theater in Brundidge has become a tradition for many in and around Pike County.

For about nine years, the Brundidge Historical Society has hosted the event as a unique way of ushering in the Christmas season at its folklife theater.  The year, the BHS will bring to the stage the highly acclaimed musical group “Three on a String” with the trio’s old-time music and side splitting comedy. The concert will be at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 1 at the We Piddle Around Theater in downtown Brundidge. “You’ve not had this much fun since Santa Claus,” said Lawrence Bowden, BHS president said. “‘Three on a String’ is in great demand and we are excited to have them at the We Piddle Around Theater.”

Bowden said tickets go in hurry and are the best Christmas deal around at $20. “You won’t find better entertainment anywhere than ‘Three on a String,’” he said. “For the same $20, you’ll be served homemade chili with all the trimmings and enjoy the fellowship of friends and neighbors in a unique theater setting.”
