Christmas Cheer

Every December, the historic town of Georgetown transforms into a bustling Christmas scene reminiscent of holidays long ago. Adorned with lights, greenery and a blanket of snow, you will find roasted chestnuts, holiday shopping, horse-drawn wagon rides, and other magical sights and smells. Carolers in Victorian costume, dancers, and other family entertainment provide memorable performances.
