Candlelight in Warm Springs

Historic Warm Springs, Georgia invites you to experience a traditional Christmas in this charming small town that is reminiscent of the towns seen in the annual holiday television movies. Now in its 39th year in 2022, Warm Springs lights up for an enchanted shopping and dining experience.

Shops and restaurants are open during the week and on weekends, and most will be open late on Fridays and Saturdays up until Christmas Eve for your shopping enjoyment.

Our town is beautifully decorated with thousands of tiny sparkling lights, green garlands and red bows. From the moment you step out of your car you’ll feel the excitement of Christmas. 

Visiting Warm Springs will surely put you in the holiday mood!  There’s front-door parking and warm friendly faces to greet you as the sounds of Christmas drift throughout town.

The Candlelight tradition began back in 1983 during a major renovation of Warm Springs when one shop owner rolled a piano onto the sidewalk. Customers were invited to share in the playing and singing of traditional Christmas carols. As nighttime approached, the sidewalks were lighted with candles and the music continued for hours.

Our opening weekend is held the Friday and Saturday before Thanksgiving when we open with Santa’s Welcome parades at 6:30 on that Friday & Saturday and our hometown Christmas parade on Saturday at 11:00 AM. Our shops stay open late on opening weekend, and until 8 PM (or later) on subsequent Fridays and Saturdays through the weekend before Christmas.

Come experience the warmth of Warm Springs…Warm hands…Warm hearts…Warm people…Warm Springs, Georgia!
