Enjoy our Candlelight Tour at Dusk on Saturday

The Saturday evening Candlelight Tour is exquisitely enchanting! As day turns to dusk volunteers border the sidewalks along the Dogwood-Azalea Trail with beautifully glowing white luminarias.

Residents cast spotlights on banks of brilliant azaleas and dazzling dogwoods as softly suffused candlelight blazons beckoning footpaths beneath the foliage festooning the thoroughfares.  Many enjoy the Candlelight Tour while trundling in the repose of their motor cars.  Others see fit to saunter along the sidewalks betwixt the lambent luminarias - finding friends old and new while celebrating the sights and sounds of merryment emanating from private porticos overlooking the Trail.  Featured entertainers performing hither and thither along the Trail extend to the Candlelight Tour an aura even more agreeable.

A Big Truck Parade!

Our Big Rig Drivers are about to turn on the lights on Friday at 5:30 p.m.  It'll be a convoy of the biggest, prettiest semi-trucks you've ever seen as this parade of giants travels straight down the highway from Exit 12 to Exit 10 as the men and women of the trucking industry show off their shiny chrome and bright chicken lights!

Let your kids come pump their arms to see if they can make the air horns sound off at full force!

Location:

All Along East Marshall Street and South Main Street
