High Peaks Audubon Christmas Bird Count @ Various Locations
Dec 16 all-day

Join us either in the field counting with one of the teams or at home from your feeder(s) if you live within the count circle.  The Christmas Bird Count is an all-day event. However, if you can only commit to a half day, you’re still welcome to join. To participate, call 828-682-4199.

The areas within the counting circle are Celo, Double Island, Jack’s Creek and downtown Burnsville, Price’s Creek, Pensacola, and Burnsville Elementary School.  If you have a preference of what part of the circle you’d like to count, specify that when you call.

All skill levels and ages are welcome, and we’ll match you up so you’ll have fun, learn and share skills.  Bring your binoculars, water, snack/lunch and camera if you like. Dress for the weather; we count rain or shine.

A Flat Rock Playhouse Christmas @ Flat Rock Playhouse Mainstage
Dec 16 @ 2:00 pm
A Flat Rock Playhouse Christmas @ Flat Rock Playhouse Mainstage | Flat Rock | North Carolina | United States

Before the calendar fills with the fun and festivities of the season, add a new holiday tradition to this year’s Christmas schedule: A Flat Rock Playhouse Christmas. In an original revue with holiday favorites for the whole family, Flat Rock Playhouse brings the spirit and magic of Christmas to life onstage.

A Flat Rock Playhouse Christmas will transport audiences through the era of Charles Dickens, Santa’s toy shop and even North Carolina’s own Blue Ridge Mountains. The show begins with a host of traditional carols, and songs and dances from holiday classics including the Polar Express and White Christmas. In Santa’s toy shop audiences will enjoy classic tunes like “Man with the Bag,” “Jingle Bells” and “Sleigh Ride.” Act II will settle right here at home in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains with those seasonal country and bluegrass hits including Dolly Parton and Kenny Roger’s “I’ll Be Home With Bells On,” Vince Vance’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” and “Mary Did You Know.” The show finishes up with two more Christmas staples: “O Holy Night” and “Joy to the World.”

Classic Movie Night: It’s A Wonderful Life @ Yancey Theatre

Classic Movie Night: It's A Wonderful Life @ Yancey Theatre | Burnsville | North Carolina | United States

The Burnsville Little Theatre Classic Movie Club has selected the all-time favorite Christmas classic “It’s A Wonderful Life” to get everyone in the spirit of the season. This 1946 movie — directed by Frank Capra and starring James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore and Thomas Mitchell — tells the story of George Bailey, the manager of a small town savings and loan. On Christmas Eve, we find him a broken man and, through some unfortunate events that were no fault of his own, wishing he had never been born and contemplating suicide. He is saved by his bumbling guardian angel, who shows him what life would have been like had he never been born. “It’s A Wonderful Life” is an enduring classic that is watched and loved by generation after generation. As always on Classic Movie Night, there are no ticket sales, but donations are greatly appreciated.
