KNOXVILLE, TN (December 2020) – More than a dozen neighborhoods have decorated their homes and yards for the Neighborhood Holiday Trails, a citywide, pandemic-friendly celebration debuting this week.
“It’s a holiday tradition to enjoy your neighbors’ decorations and lights,” says Debbie Sharp, Coordinator of the City Office of Neighborhood Empowerment. “We wanted to encourage neighborhood organizations to go all out to make their houses, porches and yards festive for neighbors and visitors to enjoy, since group celebrations like potlucks and caroling are ill-advised due to risks of spreading COVID-19.”
The Office of Neighborhood Empowerment collaborated with the Office of Special Events on planning and promotion of the Holiday Trails, which began earlier this year with the successful Neighborhood Trails of Red White and Blue.
There are participating neighborhoods in each sector of the city, north, south, east, and west Knoxville. View a list of participating neighborhoods, and featured streets, and here for the links to maps of the trails.
