Thousands of twinkling lights, an army of nutcrackers and a new red velvet chair for St. Nick
Thomasville, Ga.’s Victorian Christmas is bigger and brighter for 25th anniversary
Thomasville’s 75-plus shops – specialty, antiques, gift, books, jewelry, fine clothing, home furnishings, restaurants and more – will be decorated and open for the evening. Victorian garbed carolers will stroll the streets, musicians and choirs will perform, carriages will clip-clop through downtown and holiday goodies will add their delectable scents to the air. A snow blowing machine will bring snow to this Southwest Georgia community for children to play in and St. Nick will be ready to hear each child’s Christmas wishes.
On Friday, the South Georgia Ballet will perform the tap and jazz Christmas Revue, “Jingle All the Way,” and a Victorian Tea will offer free admission to all in attendance dressed in Victorian clothing.
Adding to the fun and festivities will be Flowers Foods’ annual Christmas In Lights (6-10 p.m. Nov. 25 through Dec. 31), their holiday displays on the grounds of the company’s corporate office. Two nativity scenes, a Victorian village, an animated train, Santa poised on an upstairs balcony and other scenes will be outlined in thousands of lights and holiday music will be piped throughout the drive-through display.
