Lake Lure & the Blue Ridge Foothills invite you to our Hometown Holidays – where you feel the magic of a half-million lights glowing on the limbs of our tree-lined downtown. Spend the weekend and experience it all with a carriage ride, ice-skating, zip-lining, hayride and Santa House visit. Watch Santa climb the "Chimney" at Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park and don't miss the New Year's Day Polar Plunge into Lake Lure for charity.

Dates you won’t want to miss include:
Santa on the Chimney at Chimney Rock State Park, December 7, 14
Santa Paws in Forest City, December 8, 15 and 22
Old St. John’s Shaped Note Singing in Rutherfordton, December 14
Winterskate, in Forest City, every weekend until Christmas
New Year’s Polar Plunge in Lake Lure, January 1
