Merchant’s Walk and its retailers are hosting the Holiday Walk on Thursday, December 6, 2012 from 6pm to 9pm. The annual Holiday tree lighting and celebration will feature live Holiday tunes performed by the Pope High School Band and the Walton High School Women’s Choral Ensemble, as well as an appearance by Jolly St. Nick who will be on hand to light the tree for the season and for photos. To express gratitude to the community for their continued support of Merchant’s Walk and its shops, guests will enjoy complimentary hot cocoa and gift bags filled with Holiday discounts and giveaways. Merchant’s Walk retailers will also provide complimentary refreshments and in-store savings exclusive to Holiday Walk guests.
The live 25′ Fraser Fir will be adorned with eco-friendly lighting as well as ornaments created and donated by the art departments of some neighboring Cobb County schools. Inspired by the theme “Peace on Earth,” Dickerson Middle, Dodgen Middle, Mt. Bethel Elementary, Sope Creek Elementary, Timber Ridge Elementary, Walton High, Wheeler High and The Wood Acres Schools were asked to use their imaginations and artistic skills to create an ornament as a representation of their school pride.
The Holiday Walk starts at 6pm with seasonal performances by the Pope High School band and the Walton Women’s Choral Ensemble. Santa will make his appearance in time to light the tree at 6:45pm, and stay for photos and any special gift requests from the kids.
