Cheer on Santa’s arrival in Marietta today and watch the tree lighting

It’s about to get lit in Marietta Square this evening.

The city will be lighting its annual Festival of Trees display, and this bearded guy named Santa Claus will be coming to town.

Santa arrives at Marietta Square’s Glover Park about 5 p.m. He’ll be around until Dec. 24 (he’ll be a bit busy later that night) to take pictures.
