SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The Christmas tree in downtown Savannah is officially up and lit.

You may remember in 2020, the event was scaled down due to the pandemic. The celebration was back in full force, and the entire community was invited to the corner of Bull and Broughton streets Friday night to officially kick off Savannah Holly Days.

There will be a full month of family-friendly events, every weekend, downtown by the tree. Susan Broker, Director of the Office of Special Events, Film and Tourism for the City of Savannah, says this is long overdue.

“Listen, it’s time. We’ve all been through a difficult two years, it’s time for us to come together as a community, be thankful, be outside, cherish each other, take part in all of our fun activities for the entire family.”
