The Avenue Peachtree City, an outdoor lifestyle shopping center, is ringing in the holiday season with a series of holiday events kicking off on Black Friday, November 24.

“We have so many incredible events and activities lined up this holiday season for everyone in the Peachtree City community to enjoy,” said Jessica Peterson, marketing coordinator for The Avenue Peachtree City. “We look forward to welcoming everyone to the center to celebrate this cheerful time of year with their loved ones and hope they can find some great holiday gifts while enjoying these complimentary activities.”

Holiday fun at The Avenue Peachtree City will kick off on Black Friday, November 24 with a special giveaway event. Guests shopping at The Avenue Peachtree City will receive a free survival tote bag filled with store hours, deals and essential goodies for surviving the craziest of shopping days. Guests can pick up for their survival tote, while supplies last, at the mall management office, located between Friends Table and the public restrooms, starting at 8 a.m.

On the following day, recognized as Small Business Saturday, guests can enjoy the best deals when they support locally-owned businesses. Shoppers can browse several small businesses including Barnett & Co., The Nest, Souls by LT and Southern Goods, a local holiday pop-up, who has returned for the holiday season and is now open in a space between Great American Cookies and Positano Pizza Napoletana through December 31.

On November 27 and every Monday leading up to Christmas, guests will have the opportunity to capture photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, who have been celebrating the holidays at the center for over 20 years. After capturing a photo with the holiday couple, guests can head to experience an additional inflatable holiday backdrop, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz of Atlanta South, located between the Christmas Tree and fab’rik.

Photos are self-taken and offered at no cost, but guests are encouraged to make donations in support of the Fayette Humane Society. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available for photos at the Christmas Tree outside of Souls by LT from 5 – 7 p.m. on November 27, December 4, December 11 and December 18.

In addition to photos with Santa, guests can take selfies with their favorite holiday characters as they stroll the Avenue from 1-3 p.m. on Saturdays, December 2, December 9, December 16 and December 23. Shoppers can also enjoy live music performances from strolling Christmas carolers from 1-3 p.m. on Sundays, December 3, December 10 and December 17.

On December 31, closing out the holiday season, The Avenue will host its annual Noon Year’s Eve event from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The New Year’s celebrations allow families with young children to party the day away as they ring in 2024 with a countdown to NOON at Central Park.
