Mark Owens & Blooper will be on hand to track Santa's journey and assist in lighting the tree around 7 p.m. Following the celebration, guests are welcome to stay and relish an outdoor screening of "Abominable" as part of the Xfinity Fall Movie Series on the Georgia Power Pavilion screen. This evening promises joyous entertainment for all, combining the thrill of the tree lighting with a delightful movie experience under the stars at The Battery Atlanta.

STORY 2: GMDT Presents The Nutcracker

The Georgia Metro Dance Theatre is set to enchant audiences with six captivating performances of The Nutcracker running until November 26th. Don't miss the Saturday, November 25th shows at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM, along with Sunday, November 26th performances at 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM. Embrace the magic of this classic production, promising a mesmerizing experience for all. With multiple dates and times, immerse yourself in the festive charm and wonder of The Nutcracker, an unmissable holiday tradition brought to life by the Georgia Metro Dance Theatre.

STORY 3: Light of Life

Lights of Life returned this Thanksgiving evening, running until New Year's Eve, showcasing a mesmerizing holiday light display every night at Life University. Originating in 1989, this spectacular show has become a beloved Southeast attraction, drawing in nearly 500,000 visitors annually. The 1.5-mile drive through the illuminated campus offers a unique experience each year, featuring over a million LED bulbs at an affordable admission cost. Alongside the display, seasonal entertainments like pony rides, train rides, and a petting zoo make a comeback, complemented by a concession stand offering festive drinks and snacks for purchase. Fees collected per vehicle contribute to operational expenses, aiming to cover electricity and ongoing operational costs without generating profits.

STORY 4: Holiday Travel at the Airport

Holiday travelers at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, beware of challenges this season. Parking shortages, hour-long security lines, and construction disruptions await. To navigate smoothly, arrive 3 hours early during peak times, expect parking hurdles due to ongoing construction, and prep for long bag lines. Security delays may occur due to lane closures and upgrades. Opt for alternative parking like MARTA or reservations at off-airport lots for a stress-free experience. Pack snacks, as concession lines might be lengthy. Stay updated on security wait times for a hassle-free journey at the world's busiest airport.

STORY 5: Weather

It's Saturday with exciting college football games and you can expect a partly cloudy day, reaching a pleasant high near 60°F with light NNW winds at 5 to 10 mph. Sunrise is at 7:19 am, and the evening brings a few clouds as temperatures dip to around 39°F. Light and variable NNE winds at 4 mph accompany a cool night. Tranquil conditions prevail, making it essential to stay prepared for the cool weather. Enjoy the games and the crisp, fall atmosphere.

We’ll be back in a moment 



STORY 6: Interview

And now here is Keith Ippolito’s conversation with Donna Rowe, president of the Cobb Veterans Foundation.


We’ll have closing comments after this.
