Magic is in the air and there is never a dull moment at Smith Mountain Lake! You don’t want to miss the Holiday Events happening all around the area Christmas Week and New Years Eve and Day! From LIVE Nativity to Grief Support Groups to New Years Day Hikes….there is something for everyone!
Vitalize Church members have assembled a manger for a live Nativity, which will be held Dec. 18 to 24 in the field near Sunken City Brewing on Virginia 122. On the 24th at 8 p.m., we will gather around the Nativity for a candlelight communion. For those unable to attend the live Nativity, the set will include cut-outs during the day so that passers-by can still enjoy the Nativity.
