Just stepping near a live Christmas tree puts many of us in a dreamy holiday trance from the aroma, remembering cherished mornings and loved ones. Visit the Eloise B. Houchens Center, an enchanting historic home, and see many trees beautifully decorated by civic groups, non-profits, and others. Enjoy a special Shopping Day this Friday from 10 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. where local artists and crafters will have specialty gifts available, and shoppers can even delight in a sack lunch full of homemade goodies.

View the trees through December 20 weekdays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., and Sundays from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. Entertainment will be provided on Sunday afternoons.

Christmas Candlelight Tours
Experience the sights, sounds and scents of a Victorian Christmas at another of Bowling Green’s historic homes this weekend as you tour Riverview at Hobson Grove by candlelight and lamp light. This truly extraordinary experience should not be missed! See how our ancestors celebrated the season by adorning their trees with handmade designs. Witness a Victorian dining table set for formal service. Imagine the laughter as children swung at the Christmas pinata hanging from the cupola. Refreshments will be provided and there is no need for reservations for this special event. Call 270-843-5565 or visit www.bgky.org/riverview for more information.
