It’s that special time again! The City of Acworth is excited to be partnering with NorthStar Church to make this year’s Santa’s Arrival the best yet! Santa will be reaching the Depot in downtown Acworth on Friday, December 4. Festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. and Santa is scheduled to arrive at 6:30 p.m. There will be a host of live performances until 9:00 p.m. to help Santa kickoff the holiday season.
Bring the entire family to hear Mayor Tommy Allegood read The Night Before Christmas and watch the lighting of the tree on Main Street.
Enjoy pictures with Santa, eating candy canes with all his elves, and filling the streets with the holiday spirit. There will be puppet shows, face painting, train rides, marshmallow roasting, hot chocolate and a live nativity. Don’t forget to visit Frana Brown Park, where you can peruse the beautiful Festival of Trees!
Pictures with Santa will be on a first-come, first-serve basis this year. The line will begin forming at 6:45 p.m. and pictures will continue throughout the event until 8:00 p.m. This year we will not have a photographer onsite, so plan on bringing your camera to capture the special moment. Don't want to wait in line? No worries! Santa will be back in Acworth for pictures at the Depot on Saturday, December 5 and 12 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
