Placeholder Image
The weather outside was not frightful which was probably why the crowd was so delightful at Tuesday night’s 28th annual Christmas in the Park sponsored by Junior Auxiliary of McMinnville.The annual celebration ushers in the Christmas season which began when Mayor Jimmy Haley flipped the switch to light the large Christmas tree located on The Lot.Local entertainer Joe Harvey said he had been to Christmas in the Park many years and he thought this year had the most people he had seen downtown for the event. This year, the sky was clear and temperatures were in the 50s. Last year, the celebration was moved underneath the Farmers Market Pavilion due to rain.“We were very happy with how Christmas in the Park turned out this year!
