A line of cars wrapped around the Earle May Boat Basin on Saturday as people gathered for the lighting of this year’s Southwest Georgia Tinsel Trail. In addition to the multitude of trees on display, attendees could also grab a bite from food trucks, while kids could play on bounce houses and visit Santa and Mrs. Clause. For the adults in attendance, the band Baby Gray provided live music that evening. According to the Chamber of Commerce, attendance grew from last year, and there was a steady flow of traffic, both foot and vehicle, with a sizable portion coming from out of town.

“We just want to thank our sponsors,” Chamber President Karen Tobin said.

“I’d just like to thank the people that came out to see the trees,” Chamber board member Renee Fisher added, “and I’d encourage them to support those businesses by shopping local.”
