Get a Head Start on Your Gifting List at URBN-ish

Shopping locally is a great way to support your community and business owners. Boutiques like URBN-ish have a wide selection of clothing, kitchenware, and holiday decorations for purchase.

Start the Holiday Festivities with the Annual Bishop’s Landing Tree Lighting

One of the best things about the holidays is the twinkly lights, warm drinks, and spending time with family and friends. On Thursday, November 18, help Bishop’s Landing kick off the holiday celebrations during the annual Christmas Tree Lighting at 6:00 pm. Grab a cup of cocoa or tea and head down with your loved ones to enjoy music from the East Coast Carolling Group before the tree is lit!
