The Christmas in the Park in Taylorville that was held in December of 2019, proved to be quite successful as the numbers were released at the park district meeting that was held on Monday evening. There were over 4,950 cars that went through the event, with it raising nearly, $15,300. Bailey Hancock, recreational director of the Park District, says that she was quite pleased with the turnout.
Hancock says that wrapping trees really helped bring in people and she was pleased with all the wonderful comments from viewers.
Usually Christmas in the Park runs a little longer as in 2018 there were 19 days, but Hancock explains that that is because of where Christmas fell this year.
2018’s Christmas in the Park ran for 19 days and 5,757 cars with donations of $15,660.
