Giant Nutcrackers invade Twilights at Chimney Park

Staff Photo: Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith  Twilights at Chimney Park will return for the fourth consecutive year on Sunday, Dec. 4, and this year, giant nutcrackers, measuring 8 feet tall, will greet guests entering the park behind Newton County Library. The nutcrackers were made by volunteers under the direction of Southern Heartland Art Guild member Ann Wildmon, pictured second from left along with Marlee Anne Hopkins and Twilights Chair Jean Austin. This year, a lighted herd of deer will also take up residence in the forest. Other activities will include storytelling, entertainment by Oxford Youth Singers, s'mores and hot chocolate and other treats and a recycled Christmas tree contest among school art classes. Also keep an eye out for an enchanting Gnome Home, a bedazzled Fairy Tunnel, sparkling bottle trees, a Candy Cane Lane, Santa's Sleigh and a lighted bicycle display. Santa and Mrs. Claus will make a special appearance. Hours are 5 to 7:30 p.m. and admission is $3 per person or $5 per family. Call 770-385-8811 for more information.
