The Taylorville Park District staff is busy turning the park and its Manners Park Dining Hall, into a Winter Wonderland as the 34th year of "Christmas in the Park" kicks off December 8th.
Mainteance crews are busy installing thousands of lights on various trees thru-out the park, as well as setting up displays from local businesses and non-profits.
Recreation Director Bailey Hancock and her staff are turning the Dining Hall into headquarters for the many events connected to Christmas in the Park. Hancock tells Regional Radio News it takes at least a week to turning the building into a Winter Wonderland.
Hancock says the staff puts up some 40 trees in the building each year.
Outside work has been blessed with good weather in the last week.
And Hancock says Christmas in the Park opens to the public December 6th with the Jingle Bell Walk.
