The event lived up to its name- Christmas was definitely on Green Street in downtown Gainesville Sunday evening.
Main Street Gainesville and the Hall County Historical Society, Inc. presented the annual event this year, which featured a parade, food trucks, tours of the historic homes downtown and many other holiday-themed festivities.
Christmas on Green Street kicked off at 3 p.m. with the opening of food trucks parked at Pinnacle Bank. The parade stepped off at 4:30 p.m. and included floats from various organizations within the community, and was rounded out with an appearance from the big man himself, Santa Claus.
After the parade, attendees were welcome to roam Green Street and walk inside many of the historic homes lining either side of the road. All of the houses are now home to businesses, and within some employees handed out refreshments to guests. Many of the houses also featured music performances from local groups on either the porches or front lawns.
The festivities lasted until 7 p.m., and were concluded with the Rotary Tree Lighting.
