Surround yourself with holiday spirit! Tellico Plains' Christmas Candlelight Walk is a special family event, presented annually on the first Saturday in December, beginning at dusk.
Step back in time, with flickering luminarias lining the sidewalks, strolling carolers, horse-drawn wagons, and gingerbread houses. Sponsored by the Town of Tellico Plains and organized by the Cherokee Women's Club, this festive event finds many businesses extending their hours and serving complimentary drinks and snacks. Visit Santa Claus with his elves, making his list of Christmas wishes and posing for photos with the children. You'll enjoy live Christmas music in many shops, the Grinch with 'Whoville' characters, a beautiful Live Nativity presented by one of our local churches, and bonfires to gather 'round. Select from a huge variety of delicious homemade Christmas cookies and candies at the popular Cookie Caper, with confections created by the town's finest bakers, all wrapped in big red-ribboned white boxes - you won't be able to wait until you get home to try some! Many townspeople don Victorian finery, adding to the nostalgic feel of the evening.
Bring your friends and tell your neighbors about this special old-time evening of holiday cheer.
