ATLANTA—Gov. Brian P. Kemp, First Lady Marty Kemp, and their daughters will kick off the 2021 holiday season with the lighting of Georgia’s Christmas Tree on Wednesday, Dec. 1. The event will be held at the State Capitol in the North Wing rotunda at 2 p.m.
The First Family will be joined by leadership from the Georgia Building Authority and special guests, Clark Howard and the Atlanta Boy Choir.

The Governor will share well wishes for a joy-filled holiday season, and the event will culminate with the Governor and First Family lighting the Christmas Tree, a 23-foot-tall eastern red cedar from Palmetto, Georgia that holds 25,000 lights.
