The Georgia Southern University Planetarium will once again host its incredibly popular holiday show, “Let It Snow,” on Saturday, December 3.

The show is like being inside a giant snowglobe of holiday cheer and is always a fan favorite. It has been shown at the planetarium since 2014, though the last two years were canceled. It will be the last show of the semester, and the public is invited to enjoy the holiday animations and sing along with the music.

Guests of the show will witness dazzling, holiday-themed animations and scenes with appearances from favorites including Santa Claus, Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, elves, and more. The music includes classic Christmas tunes from artists such as Chuck Berry, Frank Sinatra, Burl Ives, and even the Eurhythmics.

All ages are welcome. (If you are prone to motion sickness, be aware that the animations can be a bit “dizzying.”) The run-time for the show is 30 minutes, and showtimes are scheduled throughout the day at noon, 12:45pm, 1:30pm, 2:15pm, 3pm, 3:45pm, 4:30pm, and 5:15pm. Tickets are $4 per person and on sale now!

The planetarium requests that all attendees bring a new, unwrapped toy to place in their Toys for Tots donation box prior to the show. Each year, attendees show amazing generosity in helping spread Christmas cheer to the children of Statesboro, and the planetarium staff is hoping for a repeat of that in 2022.
