'Elfin’ around Downtown' on First Friday

MILLEDGEVILLE — Deck the halls with boughs of holly and head downtown to enjoy Milledgeville Main Street’s "Elfin’ around Downtown" event on Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. where Buddy the Elf and Jovie will visit Milledgeville and spread the holiday cheer for all to hear.

Bring the kids for a photo with Buddy the Elf and Jovie from the movie, Elf. Buddy and Jovie will be set up for pictures at The Baldwin. Children can bring their holiday wish list for Buddy to give to Santa. Children are also encouraged to join in the fun by making an elf hat to wear at the Oconee Regional Medical Center Elf Hat Making Station located on the southwest corner of Wayne and Hancock Streets.

Milledgeville Main Street Director Carlee Schulte is excited for the local community to enjoy the holiday theme.

“We are pleased with this month’s theme and all of the activities we will have for the kids,” Schulte said. “We hope to bring holiday cheer to everyone that comes out to enjoy the festivities.” 

Lake Country Gymnastics will provide delightful entertainment as more than 20 elf gymnasts from ages six to 14 will perform on Hancock Street in front of the Old Campus Theatre. The Lake Country Gymnastics Booster Club will also have hot chocolate for sale and a portion of the proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society in honor of the Lake Country Gymnastics family that have been lost to or are currently battling cancer.

To celebrate the joy of the season, Cub Scout Pack 87 of Milledgeville will be singing classic Christmas carols throughout the evening. 

During the First Friday event, Creative Expressions will have music therapy students and interns at Digital Bridges making shakers and jamming with consumers from the Life Enrichment Center. At 10 p.m., Buffington’s will host a benefit concert for Creative Expressions and all of the proceeds given to the Creative Expressions program at the Life Enrichment Center will allow for the purchase of specialized equipment for the center. Creative Expressions will be raffling several gift cards and music related items at the concert.
