Since 2000, Tifton is planning its Hometown Holiday Christmas Celebration. The festival promises to create family- friendly fun filled memories and a day of sights, sounds, free carnival rides, food, entertainment and shopping for everyone. We have something special for children and adults of all ages. Attendees will step into the holiday season by joining the parade route to welcome Santa. The parade starts at 5pm. After stick around for skating, 4 stages of live entertainment, the lighting of the Christmas Tree, a street dance, zip line, free carnival rides, free pony rides and so much!
