Tourism Tuesday with Tim Smith, Front Royal Visitor Center Manager and Niki Cales, President of Front Royal – Warren County Chamber of Commerce
8 November 2016
We were joined in the studio today for Tourism Tuesday – Front Royal edition by Tim Smith, Front Royal Visitor Center Manager and Niki Cales, President of Front Royal – Warren County Chamber of Commerce. We talked about all the holiday events coming up in the next several weeks since Tim isn’t a scheduled guest until after Christmas. Below is a list and links to all the events we discussed. We also talked about Front Royal being chosen by Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine as the top (medium sized) adventure town for their November issue. Copies can be picked up at the Visitor’s Center.
Blue Ridge Arts Council is hosting Deck the Halls. 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 13 years. Hundreds of volunteers participate in this event each year by artistically decorating artificial trees and wreaths inspired by clever themes such as “Peacock Plume” and “Merry Christmoose.” Last year they had over 100 items, including trees, wreaths, and silent auction baskets netting over $9,000 for their programs. If you’d like to decorate a tree this year, contact them via Facebook, website or call 540-635-9909. This year’s Premier Gala & Auction is held on Friday, November 18, 2016 from 7pm-9pm (doors open at 6:30) with a $10 admission.
