MILTON, Ga. — Milton’s Crabapple community came together to celebrate the holidays while promoting local business and even raising money for charity.

The seventh annual Christmas in Crabapple was held on the afternoon of Saturday, Dec. 7 in the heart of historic downtown Crabapple.

The event stretched from Friendship Community Park, where visitors enjoyed holiday music, carnival games and train rides, to the businesses on Broadwell Road.

Photos with Santa could be taken at Blencoe and Co. Photographic Arts, and everyone could enjoy live musical performances.

Local Girl Scouts held a bonfire and provided supplies for homemade s’mores.

The Milton Fire Department made balloon animals, while Copy Cats for Kids offered hugs from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Hunter Farms donated trees for the families of deployed soldiers.

“We’re preserving the old-fashioned feel of days gone by,” said Sally Rich-Kolb, Crabapple Community Association board member. “This event pulls at the heart.”
