Have Fun During the Holidays in Hartwell!

A Christmas light tour is one of the most popular attractions to visit during the holiday season. Different venues erect lifesize structures and scenes, from giant wrapped gifts and silly snowmen to Santa’s sleigh and his nine illuminated reindeer; these shows delight all ages. Come to the Hart Chamber “Holiday @ The Park” at Railroad Street Park from November 26 – January 2 to experience a magical lights show with a self-guided tour. You’ll look forward to this community favorite for years to come.

There is nothing like the smell of a freshly-cut pine tree wafting through the halls and rooms of your home. This season, find a real Christmas tree at Callaway Christmas Trees in Hartwell to display! The farm opens on November 23rd and sells trees until inventory runs out, which means they still have pre-cut trees for your family to choose from at a discounted price! Stop by and find the perfect tree for your home this holiday!

Watching nostalgic Christmas films and classic performances is a holiday tradition for many families. Create a new tradition with your loved ones this year and watch A Christmas Story at Hart Community Theater from December 8th – 17th. This family-friendly play centers on the story of a young boy and what he wants most for Christmas. A Christmas Story is a great play to watch at the most wonderful time of the year!

Family Ice Skating at Indoor Ice Rink ©AboutLife

Many people look forward to attending ice skating events during the holidays! Although mostany rinks are open year-round, during December, the seasonal decorations and Christmas lights help bring out a more spirited crowd. Athens On Ice, an indoor ice skating rink at the Classic Center in Athens, opens on November 25th and is a Hartwell resident favorite. You can practice your dance and footwork skills on the ice and have enough room to show off your skating talent to your friends and family.

If you’re looking for another winter activity to get the kids playing outside and the family spending time together in the great outdoors, check out Snow Tubing at Highlands Outpost. This venue offers 2-hour snow tubing and scheduled times for kids to play in the snow. Snow tubing is an exciting activity for younger kids who have never experienced snow before (or don’t have the coordination for ice skating)!
