Meteor Madness begins at 2 AM on Saturday, December 13, and will conclude with an early morning campfire breakfast of coffee and cheese grits. The folks from the park ask that you bring a blanket of chair to sit on. For more information, visit Mistletoe State Park's website.

Holiday cheer abounds at the Christmas Candlelight Tour at Pebble Hill Plantation in Thomasville. The holiday-decorated main house will be featured, as well as a champagne reception and carriage rides.
