Genuine Smithfield “genu-shines” for the holidays with a month’s worth of festive events. Why not start (or continue) a family tradition by spending a night or two with us? The pace may be slower here, (which would be a nice change for this busy season) but with all our fabulous downtown shops, galleries, farmers market, and antiques show, there will still be ample opportunity to get your shopping list checked off. Or simply come to relax and enjoy a concert, a historic homes tour, breakfast with Santa, everyone’s favorite – the Christmas Parade, and more.
But make your reservations soon. Only nine weeks until the big day! Celebrate by savoring Smithfield’s small-town southern charm!
