Every year, as the temperature outside begins to drop, anticipation for the annual Macon County Chamber of Commerce ‘Christmas on the Square’ event begins to soar. And this year, folks will have even more to look forward to with $1,000 in cash to be given away in three separate drawings throughout the day.
On Saturday, November 22nd, from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., this year’s event will host a variety of activities for children and adults including free buggy rides by Jimmy Davis and Terry Lynch, photos with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, story-telling, face painting, food and refreshments, a Christmas tree lighting ceremony and a Christmas program performance by the Macon County High School Music Department.
The voices of Christmas carolers, holiday music at the Macon County Chronicle office with Cherry Cole and Eric Cotton and visits from Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, The Grinch, Donalld Duck and Mickey & Minnie, around the square, promise to set the tone for another Macon County Christmas celebration to remember.
Artist, musician and songwriter Ronnie McDowell will also be appearing at the Macon County Chronicle office to autograph prints of his Christmas artwork.
As always, merchants will be offering specials to early holiday shoppers.
Cash giveaway drawings will take place on the courthouse lawn at 2 p.m. for $250, 4 p.m. for $250 and following the Macon County High School Music Department Christmas performance for $500.
