Christmas has always had a special feel in Brevard. It brings families together as a magical holiday spirit settles on Transylvania County like a thick blanket of snow. The annual Chamber of Commerce Christmas parade kicks off the event. Afterward, you can enjoy the evening by shopping, munching on refreshments, roasting marshmallows over a fire or caroling. Stroll Main Street all evening, where our downtown shops have the most unique gifts available, and will be open late for holiday shopping. Santa’s Elf Workshop, sponsored by some of our local non-profits, has crafts for kids to make, along with free pictures with Santa. Enjoy Main Street in style in a horse-drawn carriage, and be sure to take the kids to the petting zoo and pony rides. The cold night sky may set in early this time of year, but the twinkling lights of Brevard will bring warmth as we celebration this time of year together. Don’t miss it!
