Now through January 1st, 2016, Christmas in the Grove has evolved into a magnificent light show to bring out the inner child in every passerby! The light show is choreographed to the best Christmas tunes, which can be heard via radio station 87.9 FM. No need to enjoy the show from the cold outdoors when you can enjoy it from the comfort and warmth of your own car! 

This year’s show features a custom version of “The House On Christmas Street” by Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Judy Pancoast and voiceovers by The Demented Elf.

Weather permitted, the show runs from 6:30 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday and 6:30 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. Friday – Sunday.

In the spirit of giving, Christmas in the Grove now accepts donations for the ALS Association of Georgia. All donations are graciously accepted with 100% going to the Association, in hopes that one day ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) can and will be defeated.

Happy Holidays!
