Dahlonega dolls up city for Christmas festivities

POSTED: November 28, 2013 1:00 a.m.

The city of Dahlonega doesn’t just celebrate the Christmas season on Dec. 25. Instead the town adorns itself in tinsel and organizes activities all month long in an Old Fashion Christmas.

The monthlong celebration begins Nov. 29 with the Lighting of the Square, horse-drawn carriage rides and tours of the historic downtown area. Merchants will also have open house hours until 8 p.m. Friday.

The following day, Nov. 30, Santa will visit downtown Dahlonega along with a handbell choir and the Dahlonega Silver Singers.

The next weekend, the annual hometown Christmas parade will march through town.

Plenty of other festive events will continue almost daily throughout December until after New Year’s Day with caroling, entertainment, wine sampling and live theater Christmas events.

For more information, contact the Dahlonega-Lumpkin County Visitors Center at 706-864-3513.
