Thanksgiving Weekend usually ushers in a beautiful display of holiday lights and adornments in nearby Blowing Rock at Chetola. If you want to see gorgeous light displays and timeless Christmas decorations, take a free drive through Chetola during the Festival of Lights period starting Friday, November 27, 2015 and lasting until Blowing Rock’s Winterfest on January 29-31, 3016. You can drive around Chetola Lake and view the ice skaters at the resort, the nativity scene, a colorful train, Rudolph and other fun characters. The resort really lights up for the holidays. On certain weekend nights you can sign up for horse and carriage rides at the Bob Timberlake’s Restaurant located inside the resort.
While you are in Blowing Rock, stop in and spend some time shopping at Tanger Shoppes on the Parkway or enjoy the fine dining at one of the local Blowing Rock Restaurant’s such as The Gamekeeper.
