Deck the boughs of someone else’s trees

What: Whether a festive Christmas tree is scraping your living room ceiling, or you’d rather enjoy evergreens outside the home, take a break from the holiday stress and let someone else decorate the tree. Earlier this season, Black Mountain’s Deck the Trees initiative challenges local businesses and nonprofits to embellish a tree for all of the community to enjoy. The trees will be judged and the winners will be awarded on Friday, Dec. 9. It will be part of the town’s First Friday celebrations (which will be held on the second Friday this month). Drink specials, live music and art from AnTHM Gallery will make the holidays bright.

When: Trees will be on display through Monday, Jan. 2. Awards ceremony and First Friday festivities on Friday, Dec. 9

Where: The Monte Vista Hotel, 308 West State St. in Black Mountain

Price: Free
