Christmas is in the Air!
Several family holiday events are coming up in and around Tellico Plains which you won't want to miss....
This Friday, Dec. 6 2013, join the fun in Coker Creek from 4-8pm. "Christmas On The Mountain" offers old time holiday spirit, with special holiday shopping, refreshments, and fellowship. Coker Creek shops, many of which are along Hwy 68, are decorated and will be serving free holiday snacks.
Tellico Plains' annual "Candlelight Walk" takes place this Saturday, December 7 2013, from 4-9pm. Surround yourself with holiday spirit and step back in time, with flickering luminarias lining the sidewalks, strolling carolers, horse-drawn wagons, and gingerbread houses. Sponsored by the Town of Tellico Plains and organized by the Cherokee Women's Club, this festive event finds many businesses extending their hours and serving complimentary drinks and snacks. Visit Santa Claus with his elves, making his list of Christmas wishes and posing for photos with the children. You'll enjoy live Christmas music in many shops, the Grinch with 'Whoville' characters, a beautiful Live Nativity presented by one of our local churches, rides in horse-drawn wagons, and bonfires to gather 'round. Select from a huge assortment of delicious homemade Christmas cookies and candies at the popular "Cookie Caper," with confections created by the town's finest bakers, all wrapped in big red-ribboned white boxes - you won't be able to wait until you get home to try some! Also buy some treasures and do some Christmas shopping at the Silent Auction, offering gift certificates from Tellico Plains businesses, gift baskets from local merchants, and much more! Many townspeople don Victorian finery, adding to the nostalgic feel of the evening. Bring your friends and tell your neighbors about this special old-time evening of holiday cheer.
