Sparkle Sandy Springs

Kick off your holiday festivities with the fifth annual Sparkle Sandy Springs event on Sunday, December 5. A parade ushers in the Sparkle Village, a month-long display of miniature lit homes. These six-foot-tall wooden houses are decorated by local businesses, schools, and nonprofits. The event itself, which includes a menorah and tree lighting, is made extra special with the help of snow machines, live music, and the Sparkle Holiday Gift Market.
