Children's Season on the Square is a wonderful kick-off of the Advent merriments in the city of Atlanta. The celebration runs yearly on the first weekend in December and is organized by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA). The festivities start at 5 pm on Friday with live entertainment and Christmas tree lighting at Colony Square in Midtown Atlanta, and continue with more family-friendly fun through Saturday afternoon.

The event is actually a new annual tradition, which started in 2021, when Children's Season on the Square replaced Atlanta Children's Christmas Parade, which had run yearly since 1981 till an unfortunate Covid break in 2020. The main essence of the occasion hasn't changed a lot, as the newly established party has inherited everyone's favorite bands and dance groups, which perform on Peachtree Street and on the Main Stage.

In addition to the central bash, you can also check out special minor events, like Smiles For The Season with Santa Breakfast, running from 8 am to 10 am. By attending you will benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Children's Holly Jolly Celebration is scheduled for 10 am–12 pm, and Festivities On The Square for 12 pm–3 pm. More information on the program of events is available on the CHOA's official website in the External Resources below.
