Watch the magic of the holidays dance across the stage

Savvy + Co. Agent: Sarah Martin
Favorite Holiday Event: Charlotte Ballet’s The Nutcracker
“We have a tradition of going to the Charlotte Ballet Nutcracker each year at the Blumenthal and going to lunch beforehand at the Ritz-Carlton to see the gingerbread houses and their winter decor. Super fun day and great memories! My daughters beg to go and make a day of it each year.”

Tour a winter wonderland

Savvy + Co. Agent: Dana P. Burleson
Favorite Holiday Event: Baxter Village Christmas Lights Run
“This is a great course to see the the beautiful homes of Baxter Village decorated for the holidays with lots of Christmas lights. Invite a team of friends, family and co-workers to run or walk and come out for a great cause. This is a fun, healthy event that can become your favorite holiday tradition!”

Check out all that twinkles

Savvy + Co. Agent: Shannon Lynch
Favorite Holiday Event: “Holidays at the Garden” at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden
“Lovely for the gardener and non-gardener alike! You get to meander through the gardens, enjoy the numerous light displays and you can take your time.  Plus, it’s family-friendly with hot chocolate and Mr. and Mrs. Claus. And if you’re still working on your Christmas shopping, the store is open with botanical inspired gifts. What’s not to love?”

Listen to the sounds of Christmas

Savvy + Co. Agent: Lynn Johnson
Favorite Holiday Event: Christmas with Myers Park UMC
“One of my favorite traditions is the Christmas concert put on by Myers Park United Methodist Church. The event is actually held at First United Methodist Church because attendance has grown so much over the years. It is a tradition to go with my friends that I met through church back in 1993. Really gets you in the Christmas spirit! Beautiful music and orchestra plus the youth choir is special.”

Holiday home tour

Savvy + Co. Agent: Shonn Ross
Favorite Holiday Event: Friends of Fourth Ward Holiday Tour
“As a former resident of Fourth Ward, I have been going to this wonderful holiday home tour for over 25 years. The combination of all the historic homes, the brick sidewalks, period lighting and the beautifully decorated homes all lend to creating an infectious holiday spirit! It is the perfect way to begin the holiday season and start the festivities!”

Cruise into Christmas

Savvy + Co. Agent: Alyssa Roccanti
Favorite Holiday Event: Christmas Light Boat Parade
“This is a new fun event in the Lake Norman, you can join in on the fun by land or by sea! The lake is lit up with Christmas lights and fun boat decorations. They have on land Santa, food trucks and music.”
