In light of recent events, the safety of our Dahlonega visitors on Friday, Nov. 26th to enjoy the Lighting of the Square and the Tree is our highest priority. Town tree lights will be illuminated around the Square adding to the magic and charm of town at 3 pm. Beginning at 5pm, law enforcement officers will begin halting incoming traffic onto the Square with street closures whilst directing outbound visitors and shoppers along pre-determined routes. Limiting automobile traffic around the Square will protect our guests and all pedestrians during this festive time. Live holiday music will begin on the Visitor Center balcony at 5:30. During this musical performance the “BIG” tree will be lit to shine in all of its glory! We ask for your patience with parking and to please obey all directions from law enforcement personnel. Street traffic will re-open at 8:30 pm. Our first commitment to you is to provide a SAFE environment for you to enjoy with your family, friends and loved ones this holiday season. Merry Christmas!
