Taylorville Parks Department Starts Making Preparations For Christmas In The Park

Christmas in the Park at Manners Park is back in its holiday beauty and recreational director Bailey Hancock says that every year she tries hard to make it better than the year before. This year’s Christmas in the Park runs from December 9th all the way through December 25th with special events taking place consistently between December 7th and the 22nd. Sleigh rides are back and they will be held for free from 5:30-8:30 PM on December 14th and 15th. 



Christmas in the Park starts before cars are allowed to go through, on December 7th and 8th with the Jingle Bell Walk where families will have a chance to walk through the park.



December 9th is the regular opening night where it’s open to Cars.  Hancock asks that you turn your headlights OFF when you go through as a courtesy to the other guests. On December 9th will be milk, cookies, and Magic with Santa.



There will be a Little Mister and Miss Snowflake Competition on December 10th at 6 PM and a Christmas Bake-Off on December 11th.



To see a full list of events visit the Taylorville Park District’s Facebook page. We also have it here. 


Hancock appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
