Christmas descends on Green Street
Main thoroughfare through town to shut down for event
Santa and Mrs. Claus lead the Christmas on Green Street parade last year kicking off the annual event.
Gainesville’s most iconic thoroughfare will close down Sunday, making way for the annual holiday parade and community celebration, Christmas on Green Street. “It is a wonderful tradition we have started here in Gainesville,” said Martha Hodge, member of the Historical Society of Hall County and co-chairman of the event. “It is a great way for the community to stroll up and down Green Street, which is usually full of traffic, and see these beautiful historical homes, which is something precious we have here in Gainesville.”
