Holiday Village at Magical Nights of Lights!!

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

If you’re looking for a Christmas store with so much more, then Holiday Village is your best bet. With hundreds of Christmas ornaments from classic balls and bells to event-specific “baby’s first” and “newlyweds” to stuffed animals and cheerful elves, you won’t find a better selection of gifts for the season anywhere in Georgia!

When you walk in to Holiday House, the smell of delicious goodies like Bavarian nuts and peppermint brittle permeate the air.

You can turn to your right and sit with Santa, or keep walking and snag a stick of marshmallows for roasting from Dasher’s Diner. Dasher’s also has a great selection of carnival classics, including funnel cakes, burgers, pizza and more! Keep following the circle and you’ll see the light-up ornament section, where everything blinks and flickers and spins and whirls!

Shake up the snow globes and mosey over to the personalization station to get your name on one of our adorable keepsake ornaments.

After you’ve given your names to the attendants, and made sure you spelled everything right, follow the sound of the cheerfully charming young woman telling you about next year’s big new thing: Winter Experience! Right in front of the tv with the commercial is the check-out counter for Holiday House! Say a big hello to the elves working there before checking out the rest of the House and all the amazing displays! You can also purchase tickets to the Canopy Tours Zip Line Express Tour, which is a really amazing and unique opportunity!

Now food, ornaments, and Santa Claus are fantastic for a Christmas store, but Holiday Village is so much more than that! Just outside Holiday House are two giant fire pits where you can roast those marshmallows to a flaming stick of gooey heaven while watching the lights dance to the music!

Once you’re done with your marshmallows, zip on over to the Christmas Carnival and try to keep those marshmallows where they belong as you spin in the air on the Flying Dutchman and the Ferris Wheel!
