The Dillsboro Festival of Lights & Luminaries illuminated Jackson County’s mountain village for the kickoff of the festival’s 28th year.

Modeled after the Scandinavian custom of lighting the way for the Christ child, more than 2,500 candles in white bags lined the streets last weekend and the festival will continue this Friday and Saturday evenings, Dec. 9-10.

In addition to luminaries lining the sidewalks, Dillsboro’s merchant “elves” trimmed their buildings, many of which date to the 1800s, in traditional white lights. Once the town was lit up with festive decorations, carolers filled the streets singing Christmas favorites, a horse and carriage was on hand to take visitors around the village, and Mr. and Mrs. Claus visited with children at Town Hall.
