The smell of fresh pine, twinkling lights and Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas signals the start of the most wonderful time of the year. To spread the joy and delight of a new Hallmark Channel holiday movie closer to hometowns across the country, the network is partnering with Grace Tree Farm, 1292 Beth Haven Church Road in Denver to celebrate the start of the season with one-of-a-kind Hallmark Channel-branded festivities and fun. While on the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree, guests can also grab some holiday goodies, as well as strike a pose for a festive photo to commemorate Countdown to Christmas. In addition, randomly selected visitors will be gifted with a free Christmas tree, courtesy of Hallmark Channel.
The Hallmark Channel event happens both this weekend and next, 8:30-5:30 both Saturdays and Sunday 10-5:30. To get there, take NC73 to Tucker's Grove and turn north onto Beth Haven Church Road. Just stay on the road, it'll be on your right about two miles up the road.
When you arrive, if you can, bring a warm coat with you to donate to someone in need. Bins will be on-site to collect gently worn or new coats benefiting One Warm Coat, the national nonprofit dedicated to providing free coats to children and adults in need.
Also happening this Saturday (Nov. 27th), it's the Mundy House Christmas Market, 9am - 2pm at the Mundy House, 4353 NC16-business north of Denver. Sponsored by the Eastern Lincoln County History Society and Community Garden Club of Eastern Lincoln County, the event offers the opportunity to tour the Mundy House, a historic structure, and shop for Christmas gifts including natural, old-fashioned ornaments and wreaths. Local artists and crafters will also have their creations on display for sale.
Sunday (Nov. 28th) the East Lincoln Betterment Association will have its Christmas Tree Lighting in front of Lake Norman Lutheran Church at the intersection of NC16-business and Natalie Commons Drive. Two live trees, donated by longtime Denver residents who prefer to remain unnamed, were planted there this month by Mark Davis, ELBA Board member and owner of New Testament Landscaping in Denver. The tree lighting will be at 5:30 Sunday. Carols will be sung and hot chocolate and cookies will be available.
The ELBA Christmas Parade for 2021 will be Saturday Dec. 4th on the usual parade route from North Pilot Knob Road to just south of Unity Church Road. The 12:30 pm parade is themed "Christmas Through the Eyes of a Child," and very appropriately, the Grand Marshal for this year's parade is Sherry Reinhardt, the executive director of the Lincoln County Coalition Against Child Abuse and Child Advocacy Center.
