We just took a quick glance at this weekend’s lineup of events and, well, there is a lot going on in the always-charming town of Black Mountain this weekend! Still lots of color on the trees and time to enjoy it…here’s what happening:
Gallery Show, Oct 28 (and continuing through Nov 23) – The Black Mountain Center for the Arts is hosting a juried exhibit by the Appalachian Pastel Society. The gallery’s regular hours are Mon/Tue/Wed/Fri from 10am-5-pm and Thursdays from 11am-3pm.
CRUZ-N/Car Show, Oct 29 – On the last Saturday of the month, you can see classic cars, antiques, truck and motorcycles at this cruise-in event. This is the final CRUZ-N/Car Show of the season. More details available at www.exploreblackmountain.com.
Free wine tasting at Merry Wine Market, Oct 29 – The Merry Wine Market is one of our favorite little shops in the heart of downtown Black Mountain. The owners and staff are both knowledgeable and super friendly and they have ‘casual and complimentary’ wine tastings every Saturday from 5pm to 7pm from fall through late December. And those tastings feature pairings as well…for example, last week’s tasting featured cuisine from an Inn on Mill Creek guest favorite, Que Sera.
9th Annual Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade, Oct 29 – In a town where you can take your dog inside some of the shops as well as to eat out at many of the restaurants that have outdoor patios, it is no surprise that Black Mountain has a pet parade! See pooches in costume with their people at 3pm on Cherry Street. There will also be a costume contest ($5 to enter your pet in the contest; the parade is free to enter). Check with June at Visions of Creation for more info.
Black Mountain Tailgate Market, Oct 29 – This is the last day of the 2011 Black Mountain Tailgate Market, and in conjunction with the regular market, where you can find great locally grown food and meats, local arts and crafts, and more, the BM Tailgate Market will hold its second annual Harvest Fair from 9am to noon:
And when you visit Black Mountain, look for several outdoor sculptures done by local artists that add to the beauty of the town, all part of the Black Mountain Sculpture Stroll this fall and winter!
