The weather still looks and feels a bit like fall, but with the lighting of the grand tree in front of city hall this past weekend, there's no doubt the spirit of Christmas has made it to Dawsonville. The City of Dawsonville and the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce celebrated the season with a parade around the town square Saturday afternoon, followed by holiday festivities like decorating cookies, sipping hot cocoa and visits with Santa at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame. "The parade was awesome," said Brionna Sorrenson, a student at Dawson County Middle School who was in town to see her brother riding in the parade on his basketball team's float.
