The City of Marion and downtown businesses are planning collective festivities through #DiscoverMarionDowntown monthly events, and July is the kickoff with a “Christmas in July” theme!
JULY 23RD, 2021, 5 – 9pm
“Jingle Bell Hop” – Stop in various downtown businesses and get a sweet treat with proceeds going to the Linda Harmon Foundation. Tickets are $10, and available at each participating business (list will be posted on the #DiscoverMarionDowntown Facebook Event Page). Ticket holders will also gain access to special sales/promotions at each stop and entered into a drawing to win a Christmas Basket.
“#DiscoverMarionDowntown Cruise-In” – Classic cars will be cruising and parked around the Courthouse Square. The first 80 cars to register will receive a dash plaque. (See Facebook Event for registration link).
Historic Christmas Photo Recreation – Be part of history! At 5:30pm, show up on the SW corner of the Square, then at 8pm on the NE corner, where special photographs will be taken in hopes to recreate the characteristics and spirit of the historic downtown Marion photos from Christmastime in the 1950s.
More Features: Holiday-decorated storefronts; carolers, Santa at Sender Café; Miracle on 34th Street at Marion Civic Theatre, and more!
#DiscoverMarionDowntown will continue through to the end of the year with different themes each month. Follow the #DiscoverMarionDowntown Facebook Page for future dates and themes for these monthly downtown events, and forthcoming information on July’s event.
