5 Things To Do in Atlanta This December

And just like that, it’s December! The end of the year is always busy between holiday parties, family obligations, and gift gathering, but you need to make room in your calendar for the festive events below.

1. With a jolly Santa, costumed carolers, and falling snow, Tinsel and Twine has everything you need to get in the holiday spirit this Saturday at West Side Provisions District. If you spread holiday cheer by shopping, then you’ll want to check out the curated market packed with local vendors.

2. The road to the college football national championship comes through Atlanta with the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on December 31st. If that means nothing to you, then you’ll probably more of a Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Parade person, which you can also enjoy on the same day.

3. Bundle up for the Pub Crawl on the Beltline happening on December 10th. Sip on five complimentary drinks, as you make your way across the East Side Trail.

4. Get more mileage out of your tacky Christmas sweater by wearing it to the Ugly Sweater Run Saturday, December 3rd in Piedmont Park. You were looking for a fun way to burn off that extra glass of eggnog, weren’t you?

5. Feel festive at the Holiday in Lights at Centennial Olympic Park. Enjoy Christmas lights, ice skating, and a brand new Chinese Lantern Festival. Admission to see the twinkling lights on their own is free, because you’ve been good this year.
