Christmas is right around the corner, folks — and the annual Mall of Georgia's "Holiday Spectacular" is even closer.

The free event will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Nov. 19 at the Gwinnett County mall's Village Amphitheatre. This year's festivities will include holiday-themed performances, a parade featuring Santa Claus himself and, of course, the lighting of a 50-foot tree.

"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" will also be shown on a 55-foot screen.

Attendees are welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets. The Mall of Georgia is located at 3333 Buford Drive in Buford.
