Christmas in Georgetown Awakens the Holiday Spirit

Georgetown Christmas picEach December the town of Georgetown transforms for two weekends into a bustling Christmas scene reminiscent of Christmas of long ago. Thousands come to this beautiful mountain town to experience a traditional Holiday where Christmas hasn’t changed in 100 years: roasted chestnuts, holiday shopping, horse-drawn wagon rides through Historic Georgetown, and wonderful sights and smells.
