Usher in the happiest time of year at the 2022 Annual Vinings Jubilee Christmas Tree Lighting at Paces Properties’ Vinings Jubilee, taking place 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1 at the Tower Stage. The annual event transforms Vinings Jubilee into a holiday wonderland for the entire family to enjoy and is free for all to attend.
“The Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Vinings Jubilee is one of our favorite events to host each year,” said David Cochran, CEO of Paces Properties. “For 37 years, we’ve welcomed families and friends as they come together from across Atlanta, reminding all of us that this season is best spent surrounded by loved ones. For many, this is a holiday tradition that is looked forward to every year and we’re thrilled to be able to host the event once again.”
For guests, we hope you’ve been nice and not naughty, because Santa Claus always makes an appearance at the beloved holiday event. While his reindeer keep Mrs. Claus company at the North Pole, Santa will have his bag of gifts, his list checked twice, and will be available for photo opportunities throughout the evening. Of course, Santa will also come prepared with other activities for the whole family to enjoy – ornament decorating, balloon artists, face painting, a live puppet show, and even a train ride are all on the night’s cheery agenda. Plus, there will be take-home puppet packs provided by the Center for Puppetry Arts.
As any Christmas-lover knows, “the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear,” and the Vinings Jubilee Christmas Tree Lighting is no exception. The evening will include classic Christmas carols performed by singing elves, Whitefield Academy Jazz band and the Campbell Middle School Chorus. Before the celebrations begin, stop in for a bite or a sweet treat from one of Vinings’ delicious eateries which include Another Broken Egg Café, Café at Pharr, SOHO, Paces & Vine, Mellow Mushroom, Stockyard Burgers, Southern Baked Pie Company and Cold Stone Creamery.
