Starting Friday, Dec. 4 through Sunday, Dec. 6, Alderson will have several Christmas events: some old traditions and some new additions.
Saturday, Dec. 5, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. is the Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church Holiday Bazaar with a soup and sandwich lunch for $6. The Bazaar will continue on Sunday, Dec. 6, noon to 5 p.m. Many items are handmade and one of a kind.
Also on Saturday, from 5-7 p.m., Santa will be at the Gazebo in Alumni Park at the foot of the Memorial Bridge on the Monroe County side. For a donation, you can drive under the lights on the bridge. Hot chocolate and other goodies will be for sale.
Then on Sunday there is a Tour, Tea and Performance at The Cedars, a beautiful historic home on Hemlock Avenue. Tickets are $10 and available at the Alderson Visitor Center, Bridgewalk Shops and Alderson Wolf Creek Gallery. Times are 1-5 p.m. and sold with an hourly arrival time on them.

The unique shops in town are open as well as restaurants, so come to the Gem of the Hills and experience some place different. Every weekend until Christmas there will be something fun happening in Alderson.
