Santa’s Coming to Cobb started with a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of the children of Cobb County, Georgia.
In 2005, Dr. Louis Hilliard of Back2 Back Family Chiropractic in Mableton, Georgia, saw the need. The first year this event started with just five children, but that didn’t matter to Dr. Hilliard, he had a vision, and knew he wanted to continue to make dreams come true and put smiles on the faces of more children during the christmas season. Ten years later his event hosted over 3,000 families and over 4000 children from Cobb County. Since its inception in 2005, Santa’s Coming to Cobb has touched the lives of over 50,000 children!!!
This event is unique in that it is like no other holiday celebration in Cobb County. It is a winter wonder land that has become a part of every child’s dreams. The many activities include a petting zoo, bounce houses, games, live music, local youth performances and real snow!! Then the real excitement begins when Santa arrives by helicopter with his bag of gifts. Along with delivering a gift to each child, they will also have their picture taken with Santa to take home. There is something for everyone at this event!! But most of all let us not forget that this is about touching the lives and bringing happiness to the children of Cobb County.
