ROSWELL, Ga. — The weather outside was seasonable enough for hot chocolate warmth, as hundreds gathered to celebrate the holiday season at Roswell Square.
It was holiday cheer all around the city Saturday night, Dec. 7, to celebrate the annual lighting of Historic Roswell.
The festive atmosphere was of a quaint town that has maintained its historic significance over the years and brought on a feeling of home to a lively crowd of families, friends, neighbors and visitors.
One performance after another led to the countdown as the evening gave way to night.
Performers included River Eves Elementary School’s choir, the Hillside Elementary Singers, Esther Jackson Elementary’s chorus and the Roswell Ramblers chorus. Then, Roswell Mayor Jere Wood read the poem “’Twas the Night Before Christmas” to a group of hushed children.
After a countdown, the Christmas tree and the square were lit for the season.
