Americus has their Christmas Open House

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Santa and Mrs. Claus and their reindeer arrived in downtown Americus tonight for the city's annual Christmas Open House.

Guests took pictures with Santa, rode a trolley, and shopped in downtown stores that stayed open late.

Families said the night is a great way for the community to come together.

"Everybody been nice so far, Yeah the community coming out and looking in the stores and it's kind of like the start of Christmas," said The Strickland Family.

The event included the lighting of the city's Christmas tree lighting and the Parade of Trees in Rylander Park.
