Valley Views – APRIL
WOW presents Kentucky Derby Gala
Spring is Here!
The Winter Days Committee would like to thank all of the businesses that put up and kept lights on past Christmas and into 2019! Maggie Valley looked brighter than last winter, and we look forward to working with more businesses to keep Maggie Valley bright and sparkly during the winter months (be it rain or snow). The skis came down on Monday, March 18, and the committee is looking for 30 people to paint 30 new pairs of skis for this year. If you are interested in painting skis or want additional LED string or icicle lights for the 2019-2020 season, please call Teresa. Thank you so much for your help!
