Sunday afternoon on Green Street saw rain, cold temperatures and the arrival of Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, albeit 17 days before Christmas Day. The Clauses’ arrival in the dreary weather helped usher in the holiday season and spread cheer to the Gainesville residents who braved the elements by taking part in the annual Christmas on Green Street celebration put on by the Hall County Historical Society. The event featured a parade that kicked off the day’s festivities, as well as the Christmas tree lighting at the Academy Street and E.E. Butler Parkway intersection at the south end of Green Street.
