Christmas in Dandridge Opening Ceremonies

Staff Photos


It is Christmastime in Dandridge and the Historical Downtown Square was alive with action last weekend as the town celebrated the kick off of Christmas in Dandridge events. Thursday evening saw the community come out for the annual tree lighting and program hosted by the Dandridge Ministerial Association. Children lined the Historic Courthouse steps to add their voices to the tree lighting ceremony. The Town merchants held a candlelight shopping event and locals took advantage of the lovely lit streets and shops to do a little late evening shopping. Carriage rides around the Historic Town Square provided a unique opportunity to view the decorations and cocoa and cookies were a big hit with folks that came out for the weekend events. Santa made an appearance and children, both young and young at heart, lined up to have their photo taken and whisper their wish list. Saturday brought hayrides and face painting and, of course, shopping. Christmas in Dandridge has events planned for the entire holiday season and the Town encourages the community to come and share a few moments from Christmas past while strolling the Historic Town Square.

Local Author, Jobe Leonard Book Signing
Hits #1 on Amazon in Student Travel Guides

Local author Jobe Leonard had a book signing last weekend at Rachel’s Attic and the Dandridge General Store located in the Historic Town Square in downtown Dandridge. The event coincided with candlelight shopping and the community turned out heavily to welcome fledgling author Leonard and his book Study Abroad: The Book of Jobe. The book, which was recently reviewed in the Jefferson County Post, has received a great deal of local interest and Leonard greeted folks that stopped by to pick up a copy of his literary offering. Leonard has been making the local signing tour and Saturday’s event was a great opportunity to present his book to the Jefferson County community.
