A decades old Christmas tradition is back in Aiken.
Sam Radford, recreation program supervisor for the City of Aiken Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Department, says: “This is the 27th annual Christmas In Hopelands. The idea of strolling the pathways with the way that it’s lit up for Christmas, I think that definitely draws people plus it’s a free event. This is just one of those things that adds to the charm of Aiken. I came as a child. I enjoyed it and then growing up it turns into something you do with your friends. And then as you get older and start your own family, it’s something that you want to bring your children to continue that tradition. So, I think that once you come one time, you’re definitely going to return.”
