Decorating the Town

Deck the Town with Greenery & Bows

When you stroll the historic district of Black Mountain, you can hear "It's  beginning to look a lot like Christmas..." playing in your head.  


The  Beautification Committee was busy decking out the greenery and bows  throughout the town.  It can be seen from the Welcome Signs to Garden  Sites and Town Square. 


Below is a picture of the committee elves right  before getting ready to decorate the town on December 1st.   

Pumpkins, funkids and gourds ~ oh my!

Fall is in full swing in Black Mountain so that can only mean one thing ~  fall decorating is coming to town.  


Visit Town Square now as our favorite couple, Rocky & Rockette have returned to their favorite  fall destination.  Joyce & Mary have outdone themselves creating  these life sized funcrows. 


Over  30 members of the Black Mountain Beautification Committee spent their  Saturday morning transforming downtown Black Mountain into a fall  spectacular. Rocky & Rockette, the iconic scarecrows that oversee  Town Square each fall, were joined this year by several other “funcrows”  in adult and kid sizes. Three of the adult sized funcrows were  assembled by students and teachers at the Black Mountain Primary School  and placed by the signs welcoming all to Black Mountain. 


Other areas of  town were also decorated with haybales, corn shocks pumpkins, decorative  gourds and fall mums, including the “Welcome to Black Mountain” signs  that greet residents and visitors. The decorations would not be complete  without the giant spider looking out over our town creating the perfect  photo opportunity for visitors to the square.
