The Woodstock Market will unveil its yearly tradition of decorated holiday windows at 7:30 p.m. Friday, with a celebration to kick off its annual open house weekend.

Also known as The Market, the home décor retail store’s design team built four seasonal windows that will showcase scenes from movies including “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” “Frosty the Snowman,” “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town,” and “A Chipmunk Christmas.”

The Market began the popular Christmas Window displays in 2013, officials said. The window displays have received national attention as one of the best Christmas windows in the country, alongside retail giants such as Macy’s and Sak’s Fifth Avenue, The Market officials said.

Along with the reveal of the seasonal windows, The Market will also offer a Christmas DJ, Frosty the Snowman entertaining the crowd, and an opportunity to take socially distanced photos with Santa Claus. The event will also feature balloon artists, air brush tattoos, hot chocolate and various drinks from Steampunk Barista Coffee House, and in-store shopping until 9 p.m.

The Market’s open house weekend will feature over 150 vendors, and on Saturday and Sunday merchandise will be 20% off. Guests will also be able to make a $5 donation to non-profit organization The Big Give to enjoy early shopping access from 9-10 a.m. on Saturday.

Representatives from The Market ask that all guests wear masks while attending the window reveal and shopping. Additionally, The Market has implemented social distancing and sanitization measures informed by Centers for Disease Control guidelines.

“Because the holiday season will look a bit different this year, we knew it was more important than ever to create an imaginative and meaningful experience for our customers,” The Market owner Lisa Welty said. “This celebration is our way of saying thank you to our community, and we are thrilled to be able to continue the tradition.”

The Market is located at 5500 Bells Ferry Road in Acworth. The Market is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and will open on Sundays throughout the holiday season. For more information, visit www.the-mkt.com.
