Fill your ears with holiday spirit


Festival of Lights in Dillsboro, NC.

Dillsboro Lights and Luminaries festival is a month away and the preparation for it are in full swing.

Susan Belcher, WCU first lady, was seen at the Sylva’s The Golden Carp singing in the holiday spirit while recording the video invitation to kick off opening night of the 29th anniversary of Dillsboro Lights and Luminaries.

The video, featuring Mrs. Belcher, Boyd Sossamon of Sylva, Chloe Wood of Dillsboro, and Carrie Hockman, owner of Claymates, will fill your ears with the beautiful melody of the holiday song, Deck the Halls.

Mrs. Belcher encourages WCU faculty, staff, and students to express Catamount spirit by wearing purple and bringing their CatCards on WCU Night, which will be held December 7, from 5-9 p.m.

The video is soon to be published on WCU’s homepage,, TV 62, Dillsboro’s website and more, and will provide additional details about WCU Night in Dillsboro. See the short video we made during the break.
