Jolly good fun: Making the most of the holidays in Brevard
Every year it seems, the holidays get a little more hectic. But not in Brevard and Transylvania County. We celebrate the holidays the old-fashioned way: with beloved music traditions, heartwarming seasonal gatherings and festive events the whole family will love.
So fire up the family sleigh and head over to our place for the holidays. It’s a great way to discover, to paraphrase Linus, “What Christmas is all about.”
