The event is part of the resurgence of historic Broughton Street, which is in the midst of a multi-million dollar restoration project – the Broughton Street Collection – that is aimed at returning the area to its former glory. With a good number of retailers now open and residential lofts leased in this new development, there’s bound to be lots of energy and excitement around this celebration.

Here’s a quick recap of the festivities taking place:
Tree Lighting – The merrymaking begins the Friday after Thanksgiving with a tree-lighting led by Savannah’s mayor. The glistening 50-foot holiday tree will welcome shoppers throughout the event from its spot in the heart of downtown at the corner of Broughton and Bull Streets.
