All the magic of Christmas glistens at the annual lighting of the 45’ live spruce tree with 10,000 white lights! 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.
On Milton Square City Park with Santa, pre-lighting entertainment will consist of strolling elves creating FREE balloon sculptures, lighted train rides and holiday crafts provided by City of Alpharetta; and FREE face painting provided by Milton High School’s Interact Club.
The shops and restaurants of Historic Downtown Alpharetta will also feature holiday activities so make sure to visit the local businesses. The Christmas Tree Lighting is free to the public. Parking is available at Milton Center, 86 School Drive. A shuttle will be available to take visitors from Wills Park to the event.
