“Christmas in the Mountains,” the annual Christmas Walk house tour, will be held on Saturday, December 1st. The walk is sponsored by the Fairfield Mountains Chapel Women of the Church. Proceeds from the Christmas Walk are donated to charities benefiting the local community. Four lovely homes will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Two are located in Firefly Cove and two are close by in Chimney Rock. A luncheon at the Lake Lure Inn, Roosevelt Hall, will follow at 12:00 noon (doors will open at 11:30 a.m.). Tickets for the house walk are $15.00 and will be available for sale at Fairfield Mountains Chapel every Sunday in November, or you can call 828-625-2411 Monday through Thursday. You may also purchase tickets for the walk at the first house you visit. The luncheon cost is $20.00 and must be paid in advance by November 27th.
