We were privileged to speak with Stonecrest’s Parks and Rec department plus the city’s communication director.
The team was able to share details on the upcoming Soulful Tree Lighting Spectacular happening on December 11th.
Ms. Tameika Porter was excellent in explaining what residents can expect and the fun activities for the whole family. As a note, please arrive early to get a great spot and remember to provide the city grace for any changes that need to be made in the case of inclement weather.
PS. We are offering a special giveaway to some attendees. Make sure you listen for details!

STONECREST, GA – Stonecrest Parks and Recreation has planned another exciting
event for the community to help bring in the holiday and spread some cheer. The Soulful Tree Lighting
Spectacular is set for Saturday, December 11 from 4:00 – 8:00 at the Old Sam’s Club, 2994 Turner Hill
Road. This is the City’s second annual tree lighting, and the festivities have been expanded with live
music, a Stonecrest Santa, hot drinks and treats from local vendors, and more!
Broadway choreographer and well-known local show producer Stepp Stewart will serve as emcee and
he’s bringing along his dance team The Chocolettes. In addition, we will have Atlanta’s Something for
the Soul singing holiday tunes, plus a special Stonecrest Santa and friends.
Holiday characters will be on hand to greet guests as they come into the event space, and the City will
have attendants to direct people to their parking space. Once parked, guests will have the opportunity
to enjoy great music, take selfies with our Stonecrest Santa and his helpers, and enjoy some hot drinks
Stepp Stewart kicks off the show at 4:30 with a special opening before bringing up Something for the
Soul. There may even be a surprise musical guest appearance. Once the sun sets, City leadership will
share brief remarks and then start the countdown to lighting the tree.
The community is encouraged to register in advance via Eventbrite to help with headcount and to also
arrive by 4:00 to make sure they have a good spot. Gates will open at 3:30.
Event updates will be posted to City social media, so please follow @StonecrestParksRec and
@stonecrestcity on Facebook for updates.
The City would also like to thank our local and metro area vendors who are helping to make this a great
event for Stonecrest and encourage the community to support them at the tree lighting and beyond.
