Light Up Brookhaven is bringing a sleigh full of joy complete with falling snow, twinkling lights, and a visit from St. Nick and his reindeer!
December 4th, 2019
6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Kicking off with a visit from Santa, the fun-filled evening has activities for ages from 1 to 92! Music, games, crafts, and giveaways will lead up to lighting of the City’s 40-foot Christmas tree and dazzling Hanukkah decorations. Members of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta return with Rabi Brian Glusman to light the City’s Hanukah Menorah. Young patients from CHOA will join Mayor John Ernst in flipping the switch to light the City’s holiday tree.
New for 2019
Bring your flashlight along for the very first flashlight candy cane hunt and find treats along the way!
Manmade snow will set the mood as holiday tunes fill the air from the Salvation Army Band alongside choirs from Woodward Elementary, Weber School, Misión de Cristo Rey, and the Marist Singers. Kids of all ages will also enjoy crafts, including penguin, snowman and other holiday ornaments.
Visits from Santa & Live Reindeer
Once again, Santa will make his dramatic entrance via the Children’s Heathcare of Atlanta helicopter. Santa’s live reindeer will also be returning with their red sleigh, so be sure to bring your cameras to snap some holiday photos!
Food & Libations
Warm up on the cool November night with hot chocolate and s’mores from the Girl Scouts, and fill up on a variety of festive treats! If you’re feeling hungry for more, food trucks will be onsite serving up your favorite dishes from Gyro Chef, Lil Bites, Yumbii, and Petite Rendevous Creperie.
In the spirit of giving back, Toys for Tots will be collecting unwrapped toys to help those less fortunate share the magic of the holidays. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Buckhead Yard Greetings, and Gunnison Tree Specialists are all sponsors of Light Up Brookhaven.
