A wealth of activities aimed at getting local residents into that holiday spirit is scheduled for this weekend in Rome and Floyd County.

Christmas in Lindale 2017 will take place on Saturday.  Festivities will begin with the Lindale Christmas Parade at 3 pm; parade line-up is set for 2:30 pm at Pepperell Primary.  It will be followed by the annual lighting of the “Star Between the Stacks” at the old Lindale Mill.  The Star Lighting Festival and Ceremony is set for 4 pm to 6 pm at the Gilbreath Recreation Center.

Restoration Lindale, Inc. presents the holiday event each year in the historic mill community.  Their goal, in part, is to preserve their community’s rich history.  The “Star Between the Stacks” is an important piece of this history, according to president Tim Reynolds, who says that the lighting of the star is a holiday tradition that’s been going strong for 86 years.

For more information about Christmas in Lindale 2017, search for the event on Facebook.

The 2017 Winter Art Market will be held on Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm at the Rome Civic Center.  Over 60 vendors will sell one-of-a-kind items at the event, which serves as a celebration of Georgia artists, crafters, authors and growers.  Both parking and admission are free.  This will provide a great opportunity to purchase unique Christmas gifts for your loved ones this year.

If live music helps you to get into that holiday spirit, you’ll want to attend “Christmas Back Home” tonight at the Rome City Auditorium.  The concert, presented by Big Day Entertainment Group, is scheduled to begin at 7:30 pm.  Local favorites Scott Thompson and Brent McDonald will lead an eight piece band through a host of traditional Christmas songs along with a few original tunes for the season.

McDonald describes their set as “classic Christmas music with a twist”.

Santa Claus will also be making an appearance at the concert, according to Thompson, who adds that he’s asked the jollyold elf to bring a little snow along with him.

Heyman Hospice Care at Floyd serves as the title sponsor for “Christmas Back Home”.  Tickets are available online at www.christmasbackhome.com in advance for $15 each.  Admission at the door is $20.

Cave Spring will be full of holiday cheer during “Christmas in the Country” this weekend.  The 14th annual arts and crafts festival will be held Saturday and Sunday from 10 am until 4 pm both days at Rolater Park.
