The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear! During the weekends of Dec 11-13 and Dec 18-20, we would like to have carolers strolling through the park between the Christmas Tree light shows 4-8pm. If you have a group who would be interested in participating in Caroling in the Park, please contact Nancy at 931-261-8593 to register for a time slot.
