Looking for opportunities to stretch your legs after the Thanksgiving feast? Downtown Whiteville is offering two events Saturday — a cultural celebration and a kickoff for the Christmas shopping season. 

The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Whiteville will host the Waccamaw Siouan Heritage Celebration to commemorate the tribe’s past and honor its “cultural vibrancy and significance in our county today,” said Community Engagement Coordinator Brian Wuertz.
