Mistletoe Magic Craft Show a holiday tradition

One of the best places to begin your Christmas shopping is at the Macon County Community Facilities Building Thanksgiving weekend Friday, Nov. 23 and Saturday, Nov. 24.

For many years Mistletoe Magic Art and Craft Show has been the go-to show for fine art and crafts and unique artisan pieces perfect for everyone on your list.


The 25th celebration of the ‘Hard Candy Christmas’ Arts & Crafts Show is set for Nov. 23-24 at the (WCU) Ramsey Center in Cullowhee, N.C.

Each year, more and more customers line up early to buy the original creations of more than 100 regional and local artisans in the big arena. Shoppers never fail to find that perfect gift from the dazzling display of heritage craft and contemporary art.

But how it came to be is an amazing story.


To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Where's Waldo franchise, Read2Me, The Western Mountain Reading Council, and the Fontana Regional Library hosted a special birthday party for children in the community.

Children were invited to visit with Read2Me Ralph, the therapy dog, and Waldo and his pal, Wenda.

While children participated in arts and crafts, story time, and even a Where's Waldo search through the library, parents were able to sit down for training on ways to “raise a reader.”


A group of Americana and roots music superstars are coming to Highlands on Thursday, Nov. 29, for a rare performance at 7:30 p.m.

Balsam Range and Shawn Camp are coming to the non-profit Martin Lipscomb Performing Arts Center, and planning a great night and a huge variety of music from the genre’s best.

Camp is a world-renowned musician, performer, and singing and songwriting legend, who has most likely solidified his role as a future Country Music Hall of Famer.
