Avalon, the cosmopolitan community development in Alpharetta, is pulling out all the stops on creating a Winter Wonderland this season! Whether you are looking for a picture of your pup with Santa, activities the whole family can participate in, or some entertainment, we’ve compiled a list of all the festive fun you are sure to enjoy through the coming weeks:
1. Avalon on Ice: Daily through Saturday, February 28th
This holiday season, The Plaza has transformed into a signature winter experience that’s unparalleled in the Southeast! The outdoor ice skating rink features hot cocoa, dazzling holiday lights and festive decor. Modeled in similar size as the ice skating rink at Rockerfeller Center, Avalon on Ice will have plenty of room for new skaters, pros, families, and even private lessons! Stop by Skate School on Saturday and Sundays mornings where novice skaters will learn to take on the ice for $25 per skater.
2. Pawtraits with Santa: Sunday, December 21st
Santa will be coming to Avalon to take pictures with your beloved pups! No appointments are necessary, so stop by between 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. for a pet-friendly picture with Santa. photo packages begin at $24.99, and donations to the Atlanta Humane Society are appreciated at the event.
3. Holiday Scavenger Hunt: Tuesday, December 23rd
Santa has been hiding 12 special treasures at Avalon! At 10:00 a.m., join the North Pole elves in a scavenger hunt to help find Santa’s special deliveries. The scavenger hunt will feature special clues and stories to help find Santa’s surprises hidden throughout Avalon. Santa may even make a special appearance to visit with all the good girls and boys!
After all of Santa’s gifts have been found, participants will enjoy receiving a gift to keep along with a free Avalon Express train ride. the trackless train takes guests on a festive route down Avalon Boulevard past the ice skating rink and all the way back up to Santa’s Workshop by Oak Steakhouse.
