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 several 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. Two 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.
The theme was given "There are Angels Among Us" for the Eighth Annual Deck The Trees event. A committee of eight creative volunteers, Gayle Bromner, Barb Callaway, Allison Curtin, Jo Langevin, Janet McKimpson, James McKimpson, Tracy Munn & Renee Soulis came up with a design. On December 26, they got together at The Monte Vista Hotel and decorated the tree.
The public is invited to the hotel in Black Mountain from Nov. 30, 2018, through Jan. 6, 2019 from 10 am to 9 pm. Beautiful and unique hand-decorated Christmas trees will bring joy and inspiration to all who visit.
Vote by cash or by check for your favorite tree helps to raise funds for the Fuel Fund of the Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry. 100% of the funds generated through this annual celebration will go to SVCM.
When you stroll Town Square or the historic district of Black Mountain, you can hear "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..." playing in your head.
In December, the Beautification Committee will be busy decking out the greenery and bows throughout the town. It will be seen as you enter the Town by 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 last year.
Not a member, come join us this year and you will get into the spirit of the season.
