Christmas is coming a little early in Haughton this year! The entire town will be celebrating Christmas in Haughton on Saturday, December 16, and the celebration will feature an appearance from the jolly old elf himself.

Activities include the parade downtown scheduled to begin at 10:00 am, (will take the same route as the homecoming parade) and the festival itself will run from 12:00 noon until 6:00 pm at the new Joe Delaney Memorial Park across from Cornerstone subdivision.

Santa will be there at the festival and visitors will see 60 different vendors, food trucks, a gaming truck, lots of door prizes and several raffles!

Because parking could be problematic free shuttles will be offered from the parking lots at Haughton Middle School and Haughton High School.
