Due to the threat of heavy rain, there has been a change of plans for Christmas in the Park in Heritage Park. Rick Wilson with the Hopkins County Historical Society at Heritage Park Friday morning said “water is knee deep everywhere at Heritage Park.” The activities set for Saturday, November 28th have been canceled.
Two nights, December 4th and 5th, are now the dates for the Heritage event. The event will now coincide with the Christmas Parade and other events that take place at Celebration Plaza. Wilson said this was not the best arrangement but was the best option available.
Carlie Penson with the Hopkins County Historical Society discussed Christmas in the Park with Enola Gay on KSST’s Good Morning Show Wednesday morning. Her statements regarding the event set for November 29th were made prior to the decision to change the date due to the weather.
