It's almost Thanksgiving! Which, of course, means that Christmas events and attractions are open all around the Atlanta area. Our favorite metro family attractions have special holiday lights, shows, and magical fun.
Stone Mountain Christmas
Opened this year on November 12th, Stone Mountain Christmas is back with more sparkle than ever. Over two million lights and cheerful sounds will surround you at Stone Mountain Park. New for this season: character experiences with Rudolph, Clarice, and friends at Rudolph's Merry Little Meet and Greet, the Skylights Spectacular musical walk-through, and Rudolph The Red-Nosed-Reindeer 4-D! Plus, beloved favorites the holiday train, snow angel snowfall, and holiday fireworks have returned.
Center for Puppetry Arts: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
"Rudolph soars back into town for this faithful
adaptation of the wonderful holiday tradition that speaks to the misfit
in all of us." This shows sells out quickly, so do not delay. Contact the Center for Puppetry Arts to see if you can still catch this holiday classic. You will feel like you are in your childhood television!
Atlanta Botanical Garden: Garden Lights, Holiday Nights
This evening attraction is back for a sixth season! In 2016, explore the new Walk of Flames and a newly expanded Tunnel of Light at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. The holiday model trains have also returned, which delight children and adults each year.
For more festive events around the area, visit my friends at 365AtlantaFamily and their guide to 150+ Christmas events in Atlanta. This guide includes information for everything festive that you could imagine: local parades, Six Flags Holiday in the Park, drive-by light displays, Christmas tree farms, Santa photos, shows, and more.
Happy (early) Holidays!
