Kick off the holiday season with Augusta University as the institution hosts its annual holiday tree lighting.

Festivities include caroling, holiday crafts, trolley rides across campus, food trucks and refreshments. And for those on the “nice list,” Santa has cleared some time in his busy schedule to make a personal appearance.

Guests are encouraged to bring a non-perishable canned good or food item to donate to the Augusta University Open Paws Food Pantry, an on-campus food bank providing free groceries to students in need.

The festivities begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 5, on the Summerville Campus in front of the Maxwell Theatre. For more information, contact Special Events at 706-737-1451 or email
