The City of Hinesville will host Hinesville for the Holidays, a tree lighting event, from 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 in Bradwell Park.

Hinesville for the Holidays will feature Santa, other costumed characters and children’s activity booths from various businesses and non-profit organizations. Children can decorate cookies and create and take crafts home at no cost. Food vendors will sell a variety of foods to benefit local non-profit organizations. There will also be a train, bouncy houses and more.

“This always a great start to the holiday season in Hinesville. Having our local merchants and those in the City come together for a night to enjoy the festivities that our committee of volunteers has put together, as well as seeing the happy faces on all of the boys and girls when they get to sit on Santa’s lap is priceless,” Mayor Allen Brown said.

There will be choral performances by Liberty County High School, Bradwell Institute and First Presbyterian Christian Academy. 

The evening will conclude with the lighting of the City Christmas Tree, as well as the public being invited to sing "Silent Night." The lighting of the community Christmas tree will take place between 7-7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
