A free variety show aimed at boosting people’s spirits is planned in downtown Newnan Friday.
Christmas at the Courthouse, hosted by Taj Stephens and Joe Arnotti, will feature local music, dancing and comedy acts on the historic Newnan Courthouse steps.
“It’s a chance for the community to get into the Christmas spirit while staying safe outside,” said event organizer Larissa Scott. “We’re hoping the weather is going to be nice that night so that people can get out and enjoy downtown Newnan. And there is absolutely no charge.”
Scott said masks are encouraged, and attendees should plan to bring folding camp chairs to set up at appropriate distances. Seating will be limited to observe social distancing guidelines.
Featured acts will include Emily and Candler Budd, Or’Rin Stinson, Hannah Marie Craton and Karley Rene, and those attending will also have the opportunity to take photos with a living statue.
The event will begin at 5:30 p.m., giving families plenty of time to explore downtown Newnan before and after the show.
“Hopefully people will do this in conjunction with getting dinner or a hot chocolate, or doing some last-minute gift shopping,” she said. “It will be a fun night out for the family.”
