With the holidays just around the corner, Jonesborough will be kicking off Christmas in Olde Jonesborough with a series of fun activities on Saturdays, beginning Nov. 26, that my family can’t wait for!

And it’s not just the little ones – my husband and I love having our picture taken with Santa ever year!

The Allure of Historic Jonesborough
