A holiday tradition in Blowing Rock, Chetola’s Festival of Lights features a dazzling display of illuminations attracting thousands of visitors each year. A drive around Chetola Lake lets visitors see glittering ice skaters, a nativity scene, Rudolph catching a “big fish” in Chetola Lake, and much more. As visitors enter the resort they are given a guide that details displays and activities taking place throughout the holiday season.

The kick-off for the Festival of Lights is Friday, November 29, at dusk. Chetola’s Festival of Lights will illuminate the grounds each night through January 31. Public is welcome and invited!
