Bryan County commissioners put brakes on Christmas festival

One Bryan County commissioner said Dec. 8 that he felt like the Grinch who stole Christmas.

North Bryan resident Sarah Williams applied for a special event license Dec. 8 to run a Christmas Festival, including 75 vendors, food vendors, a carnival and other events on her 90-acre property at 1159 Wildwood Church Road, which she expected to draw 500 people a day.

Williams said she had been hosting events, including wedding receptions and a recent balloon festival, at her property over the past several years without realizing a permit was necessary.

Bryan County commissioners on Dec. 8 declined a special event license for a Christmas festival open to 75 vendors and was expected to draw 500 visitors a day.

“I was unaware that I needed a special permit for this kind of event,” Williams said.

After recent discussions with Audra Miller, county community development director, she became aware that a permit was needed and the process began.

Miller told the commissioners that her concerns revolved around COVID-19 issues, public safety, damage to a dirt road by hundreds of cars entering and leaving the site, among others.
