Park workers were busy Tuesday getting ready for the 2nd Annual Lighting of Crossroads Regional Park, slated to begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
“We want the public to come out and enjoy it,” said Corinth Alcorn Parks & Recreation administrative assistant Nina Doran. “Last year we had a lot of really good compliments about our decorations, and we’ve tried to make it even better this year.”
Decorations this year will include a Christmas tree made entirely of lights, reindeer, and a variety of other Christmas decorations, with lights across different areas of the park.
The event will feature a number of Christmas carols by groups including the Boys & Girls Club; a Christmas story from Autry Davis; remarks by local civic leaders including Mayor Tommy Irwin; and an appearance by the jolly fat man from the North Pole. Santa will bring Christmas cheer and candy canes to share with children.
Participants should meet at Pavilion 2 — the first pavilion across from the park walking trail, where there will be hot chocolate for everyone.
Event organizers wish to thank Lowe’s for supporting the 2nd Annual Lighting of Crossroads Regional Park.
