Downtown McMinnville looking like Christmas
Placeholder Image
Downtown is beginning to look a lot like Christmas with McMinnville Public Works and Urban Forestry employees placing lights on the tree and decorating light poles earlier this week.With rain dampening the tree and decoration placement, city employees wanted to get as much work done as they could in between downpours.“We wanted to get it done when the rain let up somewhat,” Public Works director Bill Brock said Tuesday. Lights on the tree were placed Tuesday morning. Wrapping lighted strands of garland on light poles as decoration, which is a two-day process, began after the tree’s lights were arranged.
