This Weekend in Georgia

If you've foundered yourself on turkey, dressing, and cranberry sauce this Thanksgiving Day, and are looking for activities more exciting than the mad rush of shopping on Black Friday, make the journey down to Jekyll Island for Holiday Island on Jekyll Island. The Christmas Tree Lighting Festival takes place on Saturday, November 29, from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm in the Jekyll Island Historic District. On Sunday, November 30, join singer/songwriter Harry O'Donoghue for an Acoustic Celtic Christmas in Beachside Hall at the Jekyll Island Convention Center. For information on these events and more throughout the holiday season, visit the Holiday Island on Jekyll Island webpage.

It's time once again for the world's most famous Christmas tale, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Three ghosts of Christmas visit miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve to show him the true meaning of Christmas. The Rosewater Theatre in Roswell presents its annual production of this timeless tale of redemption. Performances are on Friday, November 28, Saturday, November 29, and Friday, November 30. For more information, visit their website.

Looking for an old-fashioned Christmas lights display? Look no futher than A Pettit Christmas at Pettit Creek Farms in Cartersville. Actual live reindeer are featured, along with a hayride and a visit with Santa Claus. Gates open at 6 PM Thursday, November 27 - Monday, December 1. A $9 donation is requested to drive through the light show. For more information, here's their link.

And those are just a few of this weekend's highlights. For more information, check out the new website!
