December offers holiday joy
Art Walk, Tree Lighting, Parades
Mark your calendar for Friday, Dec. 1 - the date for the last Murphy Art Walk for the 2017 season. Art Walk is held in downtown historic Murphy, 5 to 8 p.m. Come down for a spirit filled evening with friends, neighbors and meeting new people. Presented by The Valley River Arts Guild, the art walk is held the first Friday of the month May through December. Discover what downtown has to offer while you enjoy the art, music and culture that is unique to the area. Enjoy the festive lights and window displays that are a part of the Christmas season. Plan to enjoy dining opportunities and stroll through a variety of shops and boutiques, an art center and more. Be sure and hang around for the annual tree lighting ceremony, sponsored by the Town of Murphy. Businesses will be displaying their holiday finery and we hear there will be a contest for the best light display in downtown!
And who doesn't love a parade! The Murphy Hometown Christmas Parade will be from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2. The Andrews Christmas Parade is in the evening on Saturday, Dec. 2.
