Hinesville for the Holidays
The heart of downtown Hinesville explodes with holiday cheer each year as locals and elected officials gather in Bradwell Park for a night of fun!

City of Hinesville officials flip the switch and light up the giant tree located in the center of the park. This joyous event will take place Thursday, December 5 from 5-8pm.
23rd Annual Illuminated Christmas Parade
If you haven’t experienced the annual illuminated Christmas parade in downtown Hinesville you are definitely missing out!

Midway Museum’s Annual Christmas Tea
Another incredible blast from the past takes place at the only Colonial house museum in Georgia, the Midway Museum. Each year volunteers of the museum decorate the 18th-century coastal cottage replica with traditional holiday greenery both inside and out to create the perfect setting for a Christmas tea party. Tea and light refreshments are offered to guests by hosts dressed in traditional Colonial attire and is followed with a tour of the museum and grounds. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, December 14. Reservations are required to attend this event so be sure to book your spot by calling (912) 844-5837 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
