A MONTH’S WORTH OF HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS ON THE CITY GREEN
BY: Karon Warren
Returning for a second year, Sparkle Sandy Springs kicks off Dec. 1 at 6 p.m. at its new location on the City Green at City Springs. The free event features a month-long display of lighted and decorated miniature houses, all painted by local businesses, schools and nonprofit organizations, plus one large, interactive house for the kids to explore.
The opening event also includes live entertainment and refreshments. “Sparkle Sandy Springs combines the traditions of the holiday season with a community artistic impression,” says Sharon Kraun, the city’s communications director. “We’re excited to host the event at City Springs, which was envisioned as a place to bring people together to enjoy events and the arts, and to meet up with friends and neighbors. The artful wooden homes combined with seasonal lighting and City Springs’ water features should create a whimsical and festive atmosphere.
This year, we’re also adding both tree and menorah lightings as part of opening night. This will be the place for visitors and residents alike to enjoy the holiday sparkle.”
