This Friday night at 6:00 pm, over 1000 luminaries will line the streets of Historic Biltmore Village to celebrate the lighting of the Christmas tree which stands in the center of Biltmore Village. The event will feature the choirs from Vance Elementary and Asheville High School. There will also be a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. Along with the traditional freshly roasted chestnuts and horse drawn carriage rides through the Village, this is a great event for the whole family to enjoy, and start the holiday season together.
