Hillsboro’s Christmas in the Foothills
Each year Christmas in the Foothills offers an array of vendors selling specialty arts and hand-crafted gifts; door prizes; the raffle of a 2017 Christmas in the Foothills framed / signed poster; and the $49.99 Art Sale, which began many years ago as a way for Hillsboro’s artists, authors, and craftspeople to give back to the community. Each item entered in the show is sold to the winning ticket holder for $49.99, and all items are guaranteed to be worth more than that—often many times more! Posters and holiday cards will be available for sale, with proceeds helping nonprofit organizations that serve Hillsboro and the surrounding areas. In addition to events at the Community Center, Hillsboro’s Main Street merchants will welcome holiday visitors. Hillsboro
is located on Highway 152 approximately 17 miles west of I-25 at exit 63. From Silver City take Highway 152 east 57 miles to Hillsboro. Contact: Melody Sears, 575-895-5457, firstname.lastname@example.org
