This is probably the busiest weekend all year in Holly Springs. There are so many wonderful things for all of us to enjoy, as well as others who come to partake in our small town beauty! The holiday tour of homes is bound to be a crowd pleaser, with many new additions to the tour. The ladies of Belles and Books host their annual luncheon at the Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery. The last thing on the agenda for the day is the Holly Springs Christmas Parade.
Be sure to meander about this weekend, mix in with our visitors as well as locals you may not have seen for a while. There is something for everyone to do this weekend right here in town. No doubt it will get everyone in the Christmas spirit!
