One of my favorite nights of the year is tonight! The city of Marion has their 'Christmas in the Park' tonight in Marion Square Park. There is literally something for everyone! Santa, reindeer, carriage rides, hot chocolate, you name it! Here is a run down of all of this evening's activities.

  • 4 p.m. - Santa Claus arrives at Marion Square Park! He'll ride in on a fire truck and visit with kids until 8 p.m.
  • 4 - 8 p.m. - Enjoy hot cocoa and popcorn all evening while listening to carolers in the park!
  • 4 - 8 p.m. - Horse drawn carriage rides will take you and your family around Marion Square Park.
  • 6 p.m. - It's the lighting of the Peace Tree! The huge tree in the park will be officially lit for the holidays!
  • Peppermint Walk - Visit all the great local businesses in uptown Marion during the special holiday open house. All the stores will be decorated and have holiday music playing!

You can get a complete list of activities from the Marion Chamber of Commerce HERE.  Bring the entire family out to Marion Square Park tonight! I'll see you there!
