The annual event will be held at the Cornelia Community House and Cornelia City Park from Thursday, December 14 through Saturday, December 16. It will be open nightly from 5-10 p.m.
Just like previous Christmas celebrations in Clarkesville and Demorest, the weather won’t stop the celebrating. “We are still on schedule,” says Cornelia’s Community Development Manager Jessie Owensby. “We will do it rain, snow or shine!”
