MOUNTAIN CHRISTMAS TOUR OF HOMES

The Mountain Christmas Tour of Homes is scheduled for December 3-5, 2010. This year's Tour includes eight beautifully decorated homes in Hiawassee and Young Harris, with artisans demonstrating their art in several of the homes.

The festivities begin Friday evening with the annual Tree Lighting at Mayor's Park in Young Harris, followed by a concert by the Mountain Community Chorus at Glenn Auditorium on the Young Harris College campus.

On Saturday and Sunday the homes are open for the tour, as is our first Decorators' Show House, showcasing the decorating talents of area designers. Also open is the Organ Loft in Young Harris, an amazing collection of reed organs from the mid-1880's through the early 20th century. The Susan B. Harris Chapel at Young Harris College will be open as well, with musical performances every hour.

Refreshment stops are open along the routes between the tour homes. Enjoy the William Holland Lapidary School, Appalachian Studio, and Campus Gate Gallery in Young Harris, as well as Deb Collins Signature Gallery, Grahl Gallery, Joan of Art Studio and ongoing art demonstrations at the ArtWorks Artisan Centre in Hiawassee.

Saturday evening brings a reception for tour ticket holders with artisan demonstrations, musical performances, and our first silent auction. Proceeds will go to the Towns County Food Pantry and the Children's Art Program at ArtWorks Artisan Centre.

Tickets are available from the Towns County Chamber of Commerce, www.mountaintopga.com, or reserve a room with us and we'll include two tickets with your two-night stay.
