Ok, so the holiday spirit is coming out in us! Just for a minute we're not going to talk about Real Estate!
We wanted to let you know of some fabulous local events to celebrate the Christmas season. Since we live in Fayette and Henry Counties, we're highlighting events in these areas. If you know of anything else good, please leave a comment so we can share.
1. Fayetteville's Christmas ParadeThis Saturday, December 4th, at 4:30 up and down the sidewalks of downtown Fayetteville. The tree-lighting and festitivities will take place at 6:00 on the square. Heritage Christian Church (right downtown) will have costumed Dicken's characters handing out warm chestnuts. There will also be free hot cocoa and Santa carriage rides from 7:00-9:00.
2. McDonough First United Methodist's Christmas Tour of Homes

Tickets can be purchased online at http://mcdfirst.org/tour-of-homes.html or in person at the Church the day of, located at 151 Macon Street in McDonough (just off of the square). Tour private owned decorated homes all around McDonough. The cost is $10. Once you purchase a ticket, you are given tickets and a list of the homes with directions. You drive from home to home and take the tours at your leisure anytime between 10-3. Did we say we weren't going to talk about Real Estate......ooops! You can bet we're going to look at these homes.....not just because we love houses, but even us Realtors need some holiday enjoyment too!
3. The Avenue Shopping Center in Peachtree City
Every Sunday between Nov 28-Dec 19, The Avenue hosts photos with Santa and horse drawn carriage rides for free. If there's inclement weather, Santa will be in the Joe Muggs coffee shop inside the book store in the shopping center. The Avenue is also decorated so pretty during this time of year. Mix in some shopping while you're there!
4. Our Coldwell Banker Bullard Offices Participate in Toys for Tots
If you participate in Toys for Tots, or would like to, our offices are drop centers for the toys. The Marines will be picking up on December 29th so anytime between now and December 18th you may drop off a new and unwrapped toy. I am told the greatest need right now is for children ages 0-2 and ages 10-13. A list of our office locations can be found at http://www.cbbullard.com/offices.html . You can also drop off at any Publix Grocery store location if that's more convenient.
