MT. AIRY – One Habersham County community heralded the Christmas season Friday night with Christmas in Mt. Airy.
The event featured music by the Ebenezer Baptist Church Choir, comments by Mayor Gary Morris, lighting of the town Christmas tree, the arrival of Santa Claus by fire truck, train rides and more.
Children were able to write and deliver letters to Santa, and then have their photos made with him while telling him their wishes.
Sponsored by the Town of Mt. Airy and the Mt. Airy Civic Association, the event gave families the opportunity to gather with friends in a relaxed atmosphere to celebrate the arrival of the Christmas season.
