THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - It wouldn't be Christmas in Thomasville without the annual Victorian Christmas Festival.

Today... the main street office set up their costume store. Lots of people dress up in their best victorian wear and stroll along the streets of downtown.

This year marks the 22nd annual festival. Between 15 and 20 thousand people attend each night.

"Last year we rented out all of our costumes and we're hoping to do the same this year. Having people strolling and walking around during Victorian Christmas is really what makes it an authentic festival for us,"says Karen Smith, Thomasville's Main Street Director.

Most of the costumes are donated or handmade by people in Thomasville. They're 10 dollars to rent  plus a 20 dollar deposit.

The two-day festival is on December 11th and 12th from 6 to 10 p-m. Feedback
