“There’s something for everyone,” said Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead. “Stroll through the park to view more than 40 Christmas trees, run a 5K to burn a few extra calories, or join the hot chocolate crawl to take in the holiday lights and enjoy live music. There’s so much to do you’ll probably want to make a weekend of it!”
