This popular annual event gives families and friends the unusual opportunity to view a nighttime parade and to enjoy the festive atmosphere of Downtown Athens while it is decorated for the holiday season. The parade begins on the corner of Dougherty and Pulaski Streets at 7 p.m. and ends in front of City Hall. The traditional tree lighting ceremony hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus will follow. Downtown retailers will have great deals and extended hours for visitors.
