Winter is a season filled with exciting activities and time-honored traditions, including the City of Kennesaw’s tree lighting program. Join the Mayor and other City officials in downtown Kennesaw as they “flip the switch” to illuminate the City’s official Christmas tree. The free program will include festive choral music and sing-along, light refreshments, and plenty of holiday cheer.
Santa’s arrival begins at noon with a Main Street parade featuring marching bands, decorated floats, vintage cars, and colorfully-costumed characters. The celebration continues with a holiday host of activities including FREE snow tubing, inflatables and amusements, visits with Santa, stage entertainment, and a holiday market full of gift ideas and unique merchandise. Food vendors will be onsite. At 5:30 pm, enjoy a multimedia spectacular of choreographed laser beams, animation and special effects presented by Atlanta Laser & Light. The 15 minute show will be arranged to a high-energy selection of your favorite holiday songs including Let it Snow, Sleigh Ride, and 12 Days of Christmas.For more information, visit www.adaywithsanta.com.
