Enjoy a celebration that will fill the downtown streets with Musical Performances, Santa, Snow, Food Trucks, Roasting Marshmallows, Farmers Market and more. At 5 p.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be visiting with children all evening in the gazebo. A North Fulton Jaycee’s volunteer will be on hand to help take FREE online photos, or parents may bring their cameras to take photos.
Mayor Belle Isle will read the children’s classic book, ’Twas the Night Before Christmas. An entertainment program will feature North Point Community Church who will partner on this year's event.
