Victorian Christmas in Thomasville brings in thousands of people

By Christian Jennings - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) – It's the annual Victorian Christmas celebration in Downtown Thomasville.

Thousands of people stroll Broad street in fancy victorian costumes shopping, eating, and getting into the Christmas spirit.

It's beautiful in Thomasvile the street is lit up with christmas lights and decorations and add the extravagant costumes it's really a sight to see. The costumes make this event so unique.

Many people rented or purchased the outfits weeks in advance but some people decided try out thier sewing skills and make a costume themselves.

"Well actually I made this myself. I didn't make the skirt but I did make the vintage top and add the fur. And I love dressing up it just adds such an exciting feeling to the event and it's fun to get your picture made and get interviewed. I think you have to be a ham at heart but it really is fun to get into the Christmas spirit," said Sharlene Cannon, a Victorian Christmas Participant.

12 to 15 thousand people are expected to walk Broad street each night. That's obviously a good economic boost for the Rose city.

There's something here for everyone. Kids can play in a Winter Wonderland of fake snow, visit Santa, you can go on a carriage ride, listen to christmas carols, and of course eat.

The food is amazing. There are 28 street vendors this year.

The event is Thursday and Friday night from 6 until 10.
