The Phenix City Amphitheater will be decorated tonight for "A Surprise Party for Santa," an hour-long program that begins at 6 p.m. and ends with fireworks.
There's no charge to attend, and free hot chocolate will be provided.
The event marks the start of "Christmas on the Phenix City RiverWalk." The decorative displays will be open each night through the holidays.
In the case of rain, tonight's event will be rescheduled for Monday, Dec. 8.
