In spite of toilet paper shortages, self-quarantines, and the pandemic, we have suddenly and seemingly without notice found ourselves entering the last quarter of a year that seems to have lasted for decades. The holidays are just around the corner, and if you are planning to spend Christmas 2020 in your new Smith Mountain Lake home, chances are you will want to know about some of the most festive activities and happenings near Smith Mountain Lake—this guide will ensure that your Christmas dreams all come true!

Bedford Christmas Parade

We’ve all been holding our breath, hoping that the annual Bedford Christmas Parade will still run this year, and our wishes have been granted! Sign up for a spot along the route in Liberty Lake Park and dress up your family, your car, or if you really feel motivated, signup for a float spot and go all out for the holidays. Held on December 5th from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM, a merry time is guaranteed to be had by all.

Christmas Shopping in Moneta

When it’s time to start shopping for Christmas presents, most of us feel like happy elves, and finding a home near your favorite store is often a dream come true! Downtown Moneta is a wonderful place to live and shop anytime of the year, but at Christmas it can be especially magical. Put new life into an old classic with a shopping expedition to the Antique Mall of Moneta or raise the magic factor of the holidays with a visit to the Smith Mountain Lake Magic and Science Shop. And because moving can be hard on home goods, the Affordable Home Outlet offers all kinds of goodies, guaranteed to make your new home shine brighter!

Quiet Moments Together

2020 has definitely brought about change, but the one thing that will never change is the extra meaning our families bring to the holidays! When you wake up on Christmas morning to a festively decorated tree surrounded by presents and the shining and excited faces of those you love most, THIS will be the Christmas you love most! Give us a call today and let’s get you into the home of your dreams near Smith Mountain Lake.
