Enjoy an Olde Fashioned Christmas in HendersonvilleRelive the Christmas spirit of yesteryear in downtown Hendersonville on Friday, December 5th from 5-9pm.  This Downtown Hendersonville, Inc., and Henderson County Travel and Tourism Visitors Center sponsored event takes place throughout the entire downtown shopping district.  Local merchants will be dressed in Victorian garb, offering refreshments to shoppers that grace their stores.  Carolers will stroll throughout Main Street and the avenues singing Christmas tunes, free carriage and hay wagon rides will be offered, live entertainment will take place at the gazebo and you can even expect a visit from Father Christmas himself!  As a special Christmas treat, the city of Hendersonville is allowing free public parking at Dogwood, Azalea and Maple Streets straight through until the day after Christmas.  The Henderson County Heritage Museum will also be open from 5-9pm on Friday.

Take a trip to the Historic Johnson Farm on Saturday, December 6th.  They are holding their Christmas at the Farm celebration from 12-5pm.  Henderson County schools have decorated trees that line the Christmas Tree Trail leading to the 1880s farmhouse.  Included in the festivities are refreshments, holiday music, a bake sale, a tour of the oldest brick building in Henderson County and even a visit with Santa (including photos with the big guy himself).  Just $5 for adults, $3 for students and preschoolers allowed free, all proceeds will benefit the nonprofit farm, educational programs, restoration efforts at the farm and a scholarship fund for high school seniors.

Take the family on a trip to enjoy a Victorian Christmas in Hendersonville this weekend.  You’ll have lots of fun!
