Suwanee will welcome Santa Claus to town on Saturday, December 5, during the annual Old Town Holiday Festival and Caboose Lighting. As he arrives on Main Street in his tractor-pulled sleigh, Santa will magically light Suwanee’s red caboose. It’s the community event that those who’ve been “nice” over the past year wouldn’t dare miss.
Festivities will begin at 5 p.m. with performances of new and favorite holiday tunes by the Riverside, Level Creek, and Suwanee elementary choruses. String students from the Gwinnett School of Music also will perform. Free hot chocolate, cookies, and s’mores will be available, and the Downtown Development Authority will offer hot dogs for purchase.
In addition to meeting and having photos taken with Santa – be sure to bring your own camera! – children can make holiday crafts. Carriage rides will be available as well for a fee.
