Meet Santa, get free photos at Gwinnett Christmas tree lighting


Kids, make sure your wish lists are up-to-date: Santa will be taking a look at them at Suwanee’s Jolly Holly Day.

The annual Christmas celebration and tree lighting will be held Friday, Dec. 1 at Suwanee Town Center. Santa Claus will be on hand for photos and to ask Suwanee’s well-behaved children what they’d like under the tree.


Gwinnett adding fall break in 2018-2019 school year


Photos with Santa are free, but you must take them with your own camera, according to a city release.

If you’re too old to sit on Santa’s lap, you can still enjoy the holiday festivities. There will be free hot chocolate, cookies, s’mores and holiday crafts while local choruses, Royal Dance Academy and the North Gwinnett Middle School Drama Club perform. 

The celebration kicks off at 6:30 p.m.
