The City of Colbert invites the public to visit the town from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 6 to enjoy “a fun-filled night of celebrating the beginning of the Christmas season.”
The Colbert Baptist Church will sponsor a live Nativity in the Memorial Garden.
“Join us at the Pavilion for the reading of the Christmas Story,” officials said. “Enjoy face-painting, hayrides, cake walks, marshmallow roast, tour of the polar express, a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the log cabin, and lots of games and free food and drinks.”
Organizers ask that those attending bring an unwrapped toy and an non-perishable food item for the Madison County Food Bank and dog/cat food, pet toys, shredded paper, shampoo, towels, sheets, blankets for the Madison/Oglethorpe Animal Shelter. These items can be dropped off at the pavilion in the designated containers.
“Come and join with the community in celebrating this year’s Old Fashioned Christmas in Colbert event,” said organizers.
