Suwanee prepares for caboose lighting, holiday festival

Suwanee elementary students are scheduled to perform at the city’s annual caboose lighting and holiday festival next week.

Children from Level Creek, Riverside, Roberts and Suwanee elementary schools will perform familiar holiday songs and welcome Santa at 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 6 on Main Street in Old Town Suwanee.

Traveling along Main Street in his tractor-drawn sleigh, Santa will stop to light the red caboose before heading to the Burnette-Rogers Pavilion where children can share their wishes and get their photo taken. Parents are encouraged to bring cameras to capture children telling their wish list to Santa.

Craft activities, s’mores, cookies and hot chocolate will be available while supplies last.
