Editor’s Comments and WNC events

Well, its been another week and I want to thank everyone who’s visited the blog. Keep coming, send your friends and make comments. If I can get to hundred visits before the end of the year I’ll rustle up a special surprise to give away—maybe a few gift certificates. We’ll see. Just keep coming back and send your friends.

It’s Thanksgiving this week here in the Western North Carolina and I am looking forward to a quiet one. Although I had thought of popping down the road. But before I go, let me share a few things you need to know about.

First, the National Gingerbread House Competition and Display are going on right now at the Grove Park Inn. They started on November 17 and will run through January 11. Click on the link below to find out more about it. There are links from the page to more information about the Gingerbread houses.

I’ve been to see it once and it was very good.

Second, I made a big mistake. The Asheville Christmas parade was this past Saturday and I should have mentioned it. Since it is the holidays and things are happening nearly every day, I’m going to make unscheduled bloggings to mention them. Right now I can tell you the town of Black Mountain, just east of Asheville, will be holding its Christmas Parade on December 4, which is a Saturday. For more information call the Black Mountain Chamber of Commerce at (828)669-2300 or go to their web site at http://www.blackmountain.org/calendar.php, which is where I got the information at.

For a thorough listing of area holiday parades go to the Asheville Citizen Times’ website at http://www.citizen-times.com/article/20101119/LIVING/311190007/1005/ENT. This appears to be as good a listing as you could hope for. I’m sending you there since it would be unethical to just copy and paste the info. Besides, I might miss something.

Keep in mind WLOS 13 usually shows the Asheville Christmas Parade on Thanksgiving morning from 9 to 10:30 a.m. And no, I don’t know which of your cable  channels it will be on.  🙂

Well, keep your browser tuned to this blog for an update of holiday events. Have a great Thanksgiving and in a few hours I’ll have an article about a short day trip posted.  Happy Thanksgiving.
