10TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS ENCHANTMENT IN THE GARDEN
The Mount Holly Community Garden will be holding its 9th Annual Christmas Enchantment in the Garden on Saturday 12/14 from 5:00pm-8:30pm. This free, family-friendly event for all in the community has grown each year and is often called the "McAdenville of Gardens". This year's Christmas Enchantment in the Garden is sure to be one to remember. Each of the 52 garden beds will be decorated differently by garden members, along with hundreds of glowing luminaries lighting your way. Local businesses and artists will also be taking part this year by decorating designated areas around the garden. Enjoy live music, food trucks and cap off the festive evening by a visit with Santa. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the magic.
