Santa to visit Chimney Rock
Old Saint Nick will visit Chimney Rock State Park in Rutherford County Saturdays, Dec. 2 and 9, for the 26th year running to practice his chimney-climbing game on the iconic rock as Christmas festivities abound.
Between rappel trips down the chimney, to take place on the hour each hour from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Santa will take a break to meet visiting children with Mrs. Claus. The day will include breakfast with the elves from 8-11 a.m., Santa photos, craft stations and live Christmas music.
Elves will host guided hikes to Hickory Nut Falls, and guests can join naturalists on the Outcroppings Deck to meet the park’s animal ambassadors.
The event is free with park admission.
