Join in the spirit of the season as everyone in town decorates with tons of sparkling lights – Even lighting up the trees on the verge! For some extra fun with the kiddos in mind, neighbors are encouraged to include Santa somewhere in their decorations so children can play “Where’s Santa?” as they ride through the city.
In addition to the homes throughout the city, between 6-8 homes will also be featured with their Over-the-Top decorations! Soak up the festive feeling of the season while exploring the decorated homes in the city, the Avondale Business District, and the plazas around town.
Calling all science fans! Adventures in Science invites you to explore science and natural history at Fernbank Museum. Learn about different scientific fields, enjoy interactive experiments, and engage with Fernbank educations and local specialists!
