The Walkway of Lights committee is already getting into the holiday spirit by celebrating Christmas…in July! There will be a picture-scanning party at a festive booth under the big white tent by the Garden House during the “July 3rd Celebration in the Gardens” from 5 – 9pm. The committee is encouraging you to bring up to five of your favorite photos or slides depicting Downtown Marion at Christmastime. They will then be scanned and returned to you that evening.
“We have a plan to promote Marion later this year by sharing these wonderful memories through photographs from the community. Some of us don’t know what it was like Downtown, Marion decades ago when businesses were booming and Downtown in general was bustling, especially at Christmastime,” explained Walkway of Lights Committee Secretary, Rose Cadena.
On July 3rd, 2019, you’ll enjoy free entertainment, food & drinks, and family activities in and around the Gardens of Matter Park from 5 – 10pm, followed by fireworks at dusk, provided by the City of Marion. (More info is in the News section of www.cityofmarion.in.gov).
So remember, when you pack your lawn chairs and picnic basket for the “July 3rd Celebration in the Gardens,” don’t forget to pack your favorite old photos of Christmas, Downtown Marion!
