Holiday Events at Vinings Jubilee

The holiday season is a great time of year to enjoy your family, friends, coworkers and last but not least, your neighbors. When neighborhood celebrations occur revolving around a holiday, it not only builds up the community, but also boosts a sense of camaraderie amongst you and those that live in your neighborhood. The town of Vinings has once again stressed the importance of neighborhood involvement and friendliness by holding a couple of holiday events that are guaranteed to get you in the spirit of the season as you get to know your neighbors, old and new.

Vinings Jubilee Annual Christmas Tree Lighting For more than 40 years the town of Vinings has marked the start of the holiday season with the lighting of a Christmas tree, and for 26 of those years friends and families have gathered around in celebration to light that tree at Vinings Jubilee. Like a scene from the North Pole, there will be train and pony rides for the kids, prizes, face painting, balloon twisting, festive music and holiday treats.

Not even Santa Claus would miss this event; kids can tell him which presents they would like to see under their tree this year and pose for photos on his lap. This event takes place at the Vinings Jubilee at Tower Stage, 4300 Paces Ferry Road, Atlanta on Thursday November 29 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides On the following two Fridays, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14, Rudolph is donating his sleigh to Vinings Jubilee! Guests can experience what it is like to be Jolly Old Saint Nick with free horse-drawn sleigh rides from 5 to 8 p.m. The holiday seasons at Vinings Jubilee is perfect for the whole family, from Christmas traditions, holiday parties and get togethers to festive activities and shopping opportunities.

With dozens of specialty shops, boutiques and restaurants, patrons are sure to find something for everyone on their shopping list, and have fun while they are there. This event is also held at the Vinings Jubilee Tower Stage and has free entry. For more information about these events or Vinings Jubilee in general, visit www.viningsjubilee.com .
