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. This Victorian-inspired holiday celebration is organized by the Cherokee Women’s Club with sponsorship by the Town of Tellico Plains.
Step back in time, with flickering luminarias lining the sidewalks, strolling carolers, horse-drawn wagons, and a gingerbread house contest. This festive event finds many businesses extending their hours and serving complimentary refreshments. Visit Santa Claus with his elves, making his list of Christmas wishes and posing for a photo with each child. There's live Christmas music, the Grinch with 'Whoville' characters, a beautiful Live Nativity, and a Silent Auction. Select from a huge variety of homemade Christmas cookies and candies at the popular Cookie Caper, with confections created by the town's finest bakers, held at City Hall. The delicacies are sold by the pound, wrapped in big red-ribboned white boxes - you won't be able to wait until you get home to try some! Proceeds from the sale support numerous community projects year-round. 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.
