Tucker Hosting Christmas Festival on Thursday

Christmas on Main Street is an annual event hosted by the Old Town Tucker Merchants' Association.

Come on out on Dec. 6 and see Main Street in Tucker transformed into a winter wonderland! 

From 6 to 9 p.m., the Old Town Tucker Merchants' Association will be hosting the annual Christmas on Main Street festival and this year is promising to be better than ever.

Santa Claus will be in attendance for all of the kiddos and the Great Tree will be lit for the holiday season. The Tucker Farmers' Market will be open during the celebration and Main Street will also be lined with craft and food vendors.

There will also be a station to decorate Santa hats from OTTMA and ornaments by the Tucker Historical Society.  

All of this will be held on Main Street under the glow of Christmas lights with the beautiful sounds of choirs to get you in the holiday spirit. We hope to see you there!

Christmas on Main Street is an annual event hosted by The Old Town Tucker Merchants' Association. It is just one of the many events hosted by OTTMA throughout the year and all money raised goes back to the community in the form of events and promotions for the revitalization of downtown Tucker.

What used to be a fun free event for Tucker community and a way for businesses to thank Tucker has sadly turned into another money making event for the business community like "Tucker Days" or the "Chili Cookoff". I think this is one tradition that should have been left alone to keep people coming to it. Just a thought!

well you thought wrong, where do you think the money goes? it goes back into the community. all these little organizations that do all this work around tucker to try and make it a better place to live need to raise a little capital. if you've ever volunteered to help you would know nothing is free, including volunteers. IMO

Never has before this DUDE! Up until 2012 this was a hometown event that was just a fun event not a money maker for whomever. Funny everything since OTTMA has begin has turned into the same thing MTA/TBA used to do which was money making. Seems like once in a while it could not be a cluster.......... All I was saying is it is just a shame that it seems to have gone the same way and I do volunteer every year.....Shows what you know.

Tucker Historical Society's Art & Craft table for the kids will be at The Garden Enthusiast Backyard Nature Station in the back classroom - same place as last year! This is a FREE event for kids to decorate and take home their own wood ornament. Starts at 6pm before Santa arrives.

Dude, I volunteer and know quite a few other folks who volunteer as well. ALL of OUR time and labor IS FREE. vol·un·teer [vol-uh n-teer] noun a person who performs a service willingly and without pay.

Janet, OTTMA didn't make any money last night. The event was a gift to the community.

Bit of history: this is the 14th festival on Main at Christmas. For 12 of those I planned these first with TCA then with MTA. Now the tradition has been taken up by OTTMA. In all of those years, the sponsoring organization has not made any money. It was done for the Festival value itself, not profit. The local busnesses often contributed to the expense. In fact, the last two years MTA did it, we paid AlLL the expenses from out own treasury with donations from the board members of MTA to supplement. We knew the businesses were struggling and we wanted this tradition to continue. This was always about the holiday and not a fund raiser. We hope the businesses profited, but it was always about the holiday. Jamey, well done.
