Santa's arrival in Suwanee set

By Staff
SUWANEE - Santa and his Suwanee elves will usher in the holiday season with music, hot chocolate, and wish lists on Friday, November 30.

Suwanee's annual Caboose Lighting and Holiday Festival will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Main Street in historic Old Town.

To welcome Santa and the holiday season, choruses from Level Creek, Riverside, Roberts, and Suwanee elementary schools will perform. Santa will arrive in Suwanee, as he does every year, aboard his tractor-pulled sleigh.

Sitting on his special chair at the Burnette-Rogers Pavilion, he will greet and listen to the wishes of children of all ages.

Hot chocolate, cookies, and s'mores will be served, and craft activities will be available. It's free and open to the public.
