Downtown Blue Ridge, Saturday after Thanksgiving

Christmas comes early in Blue Ridge - the Saturday after Thanksgiving, to be exact! One of the great highlights in Blue Ridge, GA, a memorable time for the kids and the young-at-heart to kick off another magical North Georgia Christmas season in beautiful Downtown Blue Ridge. Harkening back to the days of yore with striding carolers, horse-drawn carriages, and stores bursting with wonderful merchandise making Christmas shopping a breeze, you will find yourself immersed in the Christmas spirit, creating a memory lthat will be forever remembered. To smell the crisp mountain air, to hear the carolers singing all the old Christmas favorites, to see the beautiful Christmas decorations in the park complete with a gingerbread house, a winter wonderland sleigh - the perfect backdrop for a family Christmas portrait, to see the shops of this North Georgia town bursting with beautiful merchandise, along with the shimmering lights of the town, the laughter and the fun will be one of your family's most treasured memories while vacationing in North Georgia.

The most special visitors to Blue Ridge this particular day will be Santa and Mrs. Clause arriving on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, eager to see all the children and make sure they get all their Christmas lists to Santa. Icing on the cake for such memorable festivities is the official lighting of the Grand Christmas Tree, illuminating the winter night skies of North Georgia over Blue Ridge and happy children's faces. Enjoy later store hours, festive music, and Christmas magic!
