We'll keep your secret and you can keep your (now happy) Valentine for another year!
 
Book now: www.foxmanor.com and maybe add some chocolate covered strawberries and/or roses for added insurance.

A Belated Happy New Year!



After coming out of my food-induced holiday coma, I realized that I did not wish everyone Happy New Year! One of my favorite toasts is:
Here's to the bright New Year
And a fond farewell to the old;
Here's to the things that are yet to come
And to the memories that we hold.
 
Hoping that Fox Manor can help make some happy memories for you this year.
 
Fondly,

Santa's Reindeer Have Some Competition!



The roar of the engines is replaced with the twinkling of two million lights during Bristol Motor Speedway's annual Speedway in Lights. Along the four mile route, including a drive around the World's Fastest Half-Mile, visitors delight in hundreds of displays.

A sampling of highlights and annual favorites includes:

 •Symphony of Lights - The largest display to be added in Speedway in Lights's 14-year history, this light show features a large Christmas tree, dancing snowflakes, arches and fountains, consisting of more than 300,000 LED lights synchronized to music.

•The Twelve Days of Christmas - A dozen scenes stretch for 180 feet, each approximately 10 feet tall and nearly 15 feet wide, depicting holiday scenes.

•Santa's Speedway Sleigh (Wednesday and Thursday nights at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.) - A special tram offers the experience of an open-air ride through along the four mile route, complete with Christmas carols played on the tram's sound system and information provided by a tour guide.

Other attractions include an ice skating rink and 300-foot long tube slide, both open now through January 13, 2013 on scheduled days during the season. Also, visit the Christmas Village for photos with Santa, food vendors, carnival rides and crafts vendors.

Don't Forget-Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion September 14-16

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion isn’t just a music festival. It’s an infectious, three-day music experience, bursting with creative passion, electricity, and soul. Every third weekend in September, State Street in historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA is amped to the beat of Appalachia’s past, present, and future.


It digs down deep into the roots of traditional Appalachian sound and lifts its branches to new heights–and it all happens in the heart of The Birthplace of Country Music.  It is, and isn’t, your Daddy’s country music.  It’s hardly strictly bluegrass.  It’s not a rock show, but it totally does.  And if you’ve never been, you’ll never know how much.

Make your reservations at Fox Manor early so you won't miss this great event.

With the abundance of fun and entertainment offered each year at FunFest, it's challenging to find new events that will awe participants, but somehow it's happened, beginning with Kingsport's own version of "American Idol."

A singing competition based on the popular TV series, Kingsport Idol 2012 has sought out the best singers in the Tri-Cities to showcase their talents.

Science geeks, home-style inventors, craftspeople and artisans are invited to show their products and demonstrate the techniques of their hobbies for participants.

Showcasing the area's local farms and agricultural products, the Dinner at the Market will offer a healthy and savory meal for 100 at the Kingsport Farmer's Market from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Sunday, July 15. A variety of meats, vegetables and fruits, all locally grown or raised, will be prepared by Eramark. This ticketed event is $21 per person and is sponsored by Asbury Place of Kingsport and the Kingsport Farmer's Market.

Travis Tritt, Jeremy Camp and 1to Lynrd Skynrd Concerts, hot air balloons, boat races and lots more fun is on the way!
