Christmas comes to Social Circle
It looked a little bit more like Christmas in Social Circle as the community gathered together for the annual Lighting of the Tree ceremony on Saturday night.
The Social Circle High School marching band played “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” as Santa and Mrs. Claus rode into the city on bushels of hay pulled by a tractor.
Children lined up to take pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus as the community listened to singing from the First Baptist Church children’s choir combined with several other choirs.
People also had the opportunity to line up for hot chocolate, which was served by the local Boy Scout Troop and Clearview Regional Medical Center; take a trip around the city with a hayride; and roast marshmallows, which were provided the city’s fire department.
