Santa Claus is coming to town! That's right, Santa will make a personal appearance in Bremen, Georgia on Friday, December 5, from 6 to 8 pm. In addition to pictures with Santa, you can also enjoy the lighting of the town, cookies, hot chocolate, and other children's activities. Best of all, parking is free!
