***Due to winter weather, the Candlelight Stroll been rescheduled for Friday, December 15th, 2017 from 6 – 9 PM.***
Join us on Friday, December 15th, from 6-9 pm as we celebrate the spirit of the holiday season in a small town way. Main Street will be lined with luminaries and alive with music and entertainment. Stroll through our shops and restaurants and see for yourself the “art of small town hospitality”. Take a horse and carriage ride though town, enjoy performances by dancers, cloggers, strolling carolers, and more. The Dry Ridge Museum in the lower floor of the Beth Tilson Sprinkle Library will be open with hot cider, cookies and and Weaverville’s history on display. The kids will enjoy holiday-themed crafting with local artists at LEAF’s Easel Rider mobile art lab, and a visit with Santa.
In keeping with the charity of the season, businesses around town will be collecting donations for the Weaverville Cops for Kids program. The Weaverville Police Department works hard each year to gather toys for children who might otherwise go without during the holidays. This is a special Weaverville organization striving to make life better for kids in our community. Bring your toys or donations to help with this wonderful cause.
Mark your calendars and make plans to attend — we look forward to seeing you.
