"We invite everyone to come and be a part of the magic this year," said Carolyn Gilbert, Chamber director. "There will be something for all ages."
Finding the perfect gift should be no problem with 105 vendors from Georgia, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina displaying their unique handiwork.
Having a good time also will not be difficult with children's carnival-type activities taking place on the platform between The Depot and the annex; and live entertainment by local bands on stage all day between the Wilson Company and Ivery's Restaurant.
The celebration will be complete with good food, the parade with Santa, and it closes with a tree-lighting ceremony.
