Yes and again, please

Editorial

The first Small Town Christmas celebration was a huge success last weekend and we salute the three main entities involved – the Blount County-Oneonta Agri-Business Center, Oneonta Business Association and the Blount County-Oneonta Chamber of Commerce.

From the city Christmas tree lighting and expanded shopping Friday night to the Blount County Christmas Parade Saturday morning (all the arguments against a daytime parade seemed to be answered now) and all the events at the Agri-Business Center, the event was truly a success and a wonderful new addition to the Blount County holidays.

Ice skating, carriage rides, food, deals on shopping…you had a little bit of everything and that was one of the hidden benefits of Small Town Christmas. No matter your age or gender or interest, there was something for you last weekend.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, indeed.
