deckthehallslogo

Who can believe it’s the 12th Anniversary of this wonderful event?  Each November, the gallery of  Blue Ridge Arts Council is transformed into a holiday wonderland. Deck the Halls has proven to be a tremendous success over the past 11 years. Hundreds of volunteers participate in this event each year by artistically decorating artificial trees and wreaths based on clever themes such as “Tradition with a Twist” and “All the Glitters.”  Last year we had over 90 trees, wreaths and holiday gift baskets for sale netting over $8,000 for the programs of Blue Ridge Arts Council.   Like to help us with a donation of a tree or wreath?
