Santa will be stopping at the Depot in Downtown Acworth on Fri., Dec. 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. 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 Mr. & Mrs. Claus, eat candy canes with all his elves, and fil the streets with the holiday spirit. There will be a host of performances to help Santa kickoff the holiday season. Stations will be set up for kids to decorate cards that will be sent to our troops serving overseas. Kids will also receive a special “Support our Troops” ornament.
Arrive at the Depot at 5:15 p.m. to schedule your picture time with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Pictures begin at 6:45 p.m. Time slots for pictures are limited and only those who have reserved a time will be able to take pictures with Santa, so be sure to arrive early to schedule your picture time. This year there will not be an onsite photographer, so plan on bringing your camera to capture the special moment.
