Wrap up the holidays among festive lights with beer or wine in hand

Just because the holiday season is ending soon doesn’t mean you have to give up seeing holiday lights.

Advance tickets are on sale now for $40 at bigtickets.com.

“Enjoy a night full of great beer and wine samples at a wonderful setting. Walk the ATL Holiday Light show course with beer & wine tables along the way, and party with DJ Qtip in the heated DJ tent,” the event description read.

Another said, “Just drove through there tonight. Was so much fun!”
