Ho Ho Holiday!
The Elf on the Shelf® Adventure
Beginning November 25, more than two dozen downtown businesses will be adopting scout elves for The Elf on the Shelf® Adventure. Children of all ages can be a part of this community-wide Elf on the Shelf scavenger hunt as Santa's helpers land each day in Downtown Knoxville. Scout elves will return to the North Pole for the season on December 24.
Grab a hot chocolate and stroll around downtown to enjoy trees, windows, doors, and patios dripping in lights and dipped in peppermint. Businesses will be decked in peppermint-themed decorations to add to the over 100,000+ lights and garlands draped throughout trees and parks. Adding to the peppermint fun, Downtown restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, bars, and boutiques will be featuring peppermint specials throughout the season. #knoxpeppermint #lovedowntownknox #knoxrocks
