There’s still time to see ‘Deck the Trees’


Deck the Trees is at the Monte Vista Hotel in Black Mountain through Sunday, Dec. 31. Beautiful and unique hand-decorated Christmas trees in the theme of “80 Years of Christmas” are celebrating the hotel’s 80th anniversary.

The past eight decades have been marked with war and peace, prosperity and strife, technology and toys, celebration and reflection. But the celebration of Christmas came as a blessing every single year, as it did again in 2017.

The hotel is open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Your vote by cash or check for your favorite tree helps to raise funds for Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry. All money raised goes to the ministry for its fuel fund.
