CONYERS — Beginning Friday night, Rockdale County kicked off the holidays with a two-day Christmas celebration.

On Friday, Commercial Street was transformed into the North Pole offering crafts, a secret Santa shop, ice skating, horse and carriage rides, Christmas caroling, marshmallow roasting and, of course, a visit with Santa Claus to all attendees.

The next morning Olde Town had more than 30 vendors, allowing citizens to peruse and have a chance to find the perfect Christmas gift.

Finally, at 2 p.m., schools, community organizations and businesses participated in the parade, beginning at Rockdale County High School and ending at the Rockdale County Courthouse.
