Christmas & Holiday Festivities in Athens, GA 2016

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Success Realty

It's that time of the year when I start spewing Christmas lights all over my post here because it is my favorite time of the year in Athens, GA!

 

Who doesn't love a parade or three?

Thursday, December 1, 2016 kicks off the season with the Athens, GA Parade of Lights.  This year the theme is “A Fairytale Christmas”.  The parade starts at 7pm (nearby roads start shutting down around 4pm), but be early to get a great spot for viewing.   Need more info about the Athens Christmas parade and route?  Just click here.

 

Friday, December 2, 2016 gives you several options for celebrations!

Colbert, GA plays host to “An Old Fashioned Christmas”  “”Christmas in Colbert” is this Friday, December 2, 2016 6:30 – 8:30 in Downtown Colbert, GA.

We are looking forward having a wonderful evening to kick off the Christmas season. Hotdogs, drinks, hot-chocolate, candy, cookies, a visit with Santa and Mrs. Santa, a visit to the Manger with live animals. A hayride, face-painting, a visit through the Polar Express, and a cake walk.

All activities and food free of charge. Please remember to bring a canned good or unwrapped toy for the Madison County Food Bank to help our county supply a special Christmas for those in need. Bring a donated item for the Animal Shelter, (Shredded paper, dog/cat food, paper towels, hand sanitizer, etc.) There will be a special place set up for your donations.

 

Friday, December 2, 2016 is also “Christmas in the Park” in Winterville, GA!  (Please note that we are still trying to confirm the date/time for this year – check back!).

Can you believe we are almost into December? Where has the year gone, certainly moving way to fast. Hope you finish out the year at a record pace.
