Thanksgiving is just next week, and Christmas will be here before we know it! So we thought we’d highlight a few of the activities happening in the area over the next few weeks to celebrate the season.
On Saturday, November 30, there will be a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Evans Towne Center Park from 4PM until dark. There will be live entertainment, and Santa will be there!
On December 7 the annual Christmas Fantasy Parade and Light-Up Spectacular will be held in downtown Augusta on Broad Street and at the Augusta Common beginning at 2PM. Also that day at the Augusta Common from noon until 8PM The 12 Bands of Christmas will be performing.
North Augusta’s Christmas Parade themed “Dreams of Christmas” will be held Sunday, December 8 beginning at 2PM. The City of Aiken will also be holding their parade themed “A Southern Christmas” that same day, also beginning at 2PM.
Augusta’s historic Imperial Theater will have several performances to celebrate the season including The Nutcracker, A Christmas Carol, and Christmas with John Berry. Information for all shows can be found by following the links.
And don’t forget what has become an Augusta tradition - Lights of the South in Grovetown. Open nightly from 6PM-10PM, Lights of the South is a display of over 5 MILLION lights covering over 100 acres. Visitors can enjoy hayrides, roasting marshmallows while sipping hot chocolate, great food, and much more.
