BROOKVILLE — Members of the park board and other volunteers spent Saturday, Nov. 18, putting up displays for the annual Christmas in the Park drive-thru event.
The event will take place Friday, Dec.1, from 6-8 p.m. in Golden Gate Park, located at 545 Upper Lewisburg-Salem Road.
After the kick-off event, the park will be open to view the Christmas displays from 6-9 p.m. through Jan. 1, 2024.
Participating once again in this year’s event include Cub Scout Pack 47, ARO Landscaping, the Brookville Optimists Club, the Kiwanis Club, the Brookville Chamber of Commerce, the Future Farmers of America, Brave Church, The Brookville Fire Department Association and the Brookville Flower Shop.
Brave Church will decorate a shelter and hand out hot chocolate packets.
The Brookville Fire Department Association plans to decorate the Robert Wright shelter located near the park’s exit.
The Optimist Club plans to decorate its pavilion.
The Kiwanis Club will decorate its shelter.
Palette of Threads Boutique, located in Englewood, is participating for the first time this year.
Park board president Adam Blevins said the boutique is decorating the shelter Bare Naked Tanning decorated last year.
The Brookville Flower Shop plans to donate items to be handed out on Dec. 1.
Park board member Carolyn Haney noted the Delta Theta Tau sorority plans to decorate the Leiber Center.
“The sorority gave us those two nice Christmas trees, so they are going to decorate them in the Leiber Center,” Haney said.
The city of Brookville is also working with Santa Claus to make sure the letters of girls and boys reach him at the North Pole.
Kids may turn in their letters as their parents drive through the park during the kick-off event. The letters will be placed in a special mailbox located outside the Leiber Center and will be delivered to Santa Claus.
After the kick-off event, kids may place their letters to Santa in the mailbox.
