What To Do This Weekend In Downtown Macon


Downtown Macon is merry and bright thanks to the Main Street Christmas Light Show Extravaganza. Thousands of lights adorn the trees and bushes on four city blocks in downtown Macon. Watch the lights flicker and move as original music composed by Macon Pops plays your favorite holidays songs. The light show takes place every night from 6:00-10:00pm until January 4, 2019.

If the Main Street Christmas Light Show Extravaganza is not enough to get you downtown, check out these eighteen special events happening this weekend!
