The tree lighting festivities will begin at 6 p.m. at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame and will include photos with Santa, cookie decorating, mobile stuff-a-bear, balloon animals and hot chocolate according to the city of Dawsonville Facebook page. 

The Jingle Market will go on as planned with all booths indoors beginning at 4 p.m., Moore said.
