Hallmark movies portray the perfect Christmas where everything is bright and the towns are filled with holiday events! Well we took a few notes from our Hallmark watching and have created a monthlong holiday celebration complete with a 15 mile trail of lights.
Situated right down the road from the Christmas Tree Capital of the World, you can be sure that you are in the right place for celebrating your family’s holiday. From choosing and cutting your perfect Christmas tree to taking the kids ice skating in our downtown, we have you covered! Visit the top of Roan Mountain where if it is even a bit wintry, you will find snow covered trails and breathtaking vistas for an instagram worthy holiday hike. Our local shops are bedecked with lights and offer handcrafted products by hundreds of local artisans. Children’s events pack the weekends from ornament making, breakfast with Santa, ice skating, and candy cane hunts. The season is also filled with Christmas plays and concerts at area churches along with a Live Nativity along the Creekwalk in Bakersville.
The Mountain Christmas Trail of Lights runs from Thanksgiving weekend until New Year’s Eve. You can find the google map of the trail at www.amountainchristmastrailoflights.comalong with all of the holiday events!
