With Thanksgiving just two weeks away, many local businesses are getting a head start on holiday festivities, including Belle Meade Plantation.

On Thursday, Nov. 8, the historic museum will showcase its Christmas-themed mansion for free at the annual Holiday Open House. The three-hour event begins at 5 p.m.

Although mansion tours are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, the event also features wine tastings, ice cream, crafts and a visit from Santa. Belle Meade Plantation is located at 5025 Harding Pike.

What to expect

After touring the mansion, stick around for apple cider, cookies, ice cream and fudge. Belle Meade Winery will be open with free tastings and samples, along with meals available for purchase from Jim N Nicks BBQ.
