BUFORD — The city of Buford will host its Holiday Festival and Parade this coming weekend.

With festivities from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, the event will include stage performances, vendors, giveaways and “holiday treats.” It will be staged in downtown Buford at the corner of Main and S. Hill streets.
