Newnan and Coweta area youngsters have a chance to tell their wishes in person as Santa makes his annual post-Thanksgiving stop in downtown Newnan tonight.

The visit is for the 2012 Main Street Newnan Mingle with Kringle event. Santa will arrive at 6 p.m. and will be available to hear Christmas wishes until 8 p.m. 

Parents are welcome to bring cameras to take a photo of their child with Santa.

Main Street is also designating Nov. 23 as Plaid Friday in downtown Newnan until 8 p.m. Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses, offering an alternative to big box stores’ Black Friday events. Wear plaid at participating businesses and receive a gift, Gentry said.

Santa will also make an appearance in the city of Newnan Christmas Parade Dec. 2. It begins at 3 p.m. at the city park at Temple Avenue and Jackson Street and will continue on Jackson, through the Court Square and out LaGrange Street to Newnan High School.
