Christmas in Crabapple to take place Dec. 17.

MILTON, Ga., Nov. 29, 2011 - Perk up those ears for sleigh bells and pack the mittens, because the Fourth Annual Christmas in Crabapple holiday celebration will take place Saturday, Dec. 17 from 2 to 5 p.m. in Milton's historic downtown Crabapple.

As always there will be Christmas, Hanukkah and holiday music favorites from local children's choirs, a community bonfire and photos with Santa. But this year's event also boasts free rides on a holiday train and a brand new "North Pole Passport" program featuring more than 20 participating local businesses.

As part of this program, families will be whisked from shop to shop, receiving small gifts and partaking in holiday activities. Those who return with a passport stamped by every participant receive a free, limited edition gift.

A limited amount of spaces are available for this exciting program, so make sure you RSVP to by Dec. 5 to reserve your family's spot.

It's all thanks to the Crabapple Community Association (CCA), the non-profit volunteer organization that has worked with the City of Milton to plan and execute this year's event. If any openings are left by Dec. 17, the remaining passports will be available first-come, first-served, said Kathryn Walker of the CCA.

"We've worked very hard to try and include every Crabapple business in this program so residents can experience all the great food, gifts and services available in this historic area," she said.
