Chili Town, Santa, holiday music and more at December F1rst Friday event
Web Holiday File photo
In this Herald file photo from last year, Jona Gaskin, center, has a brisk discussion over chili with pal and co-worker Mary Helen Law, right, during 2010's Downtown Statesboro Holiday Celebration and Chili Cookoff.
For a short time this holiday season, Santa Claus will not be in a North Pole workshop prepping for his big night. The Christmas icon will instead be beard-deep in a bowl of homemade chili, kicking off the holiday in a way only the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority (DSDA) can. The jolly Claus will join hundreds of others Friday visiting downtown Statesboro to take part in the city’s annual Holiday Celebration and, as always, enjoy a delectable clash between the area’s finest chili-makers.
