The Vinings Jubilee Annual Christmas Tree Lighting is set for Thursday, Nov. 29, 6-8 p.m. at Vinings Jubilee shopping center. The free event will feature a train and pony rides for the kids, prizes, face painting, balloon twisting, festive music and holiday treats. Not even Santa Claus would miss this event; kids can tell him which presents they would like to see under their tree this year and pose for photos on his lap.

Later in December, there will be free Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides on Dec. 7 and 14 from 5-8 p.m. leaving from the tower stage at Vinings Jubilee.

And, of course, taking part in these events is a perfect time to get some shopping done at the Jubilee’s specialty shops and boutiques and and grabbing a bite to eat. For more visit,
