This is an annual event held to: "To celebrate the spirit and goodwill of Christmas by decorating our community and developing traditions for Murphysboro families and visitors." The experiences that make up this entire month-long celebration have become our signature for Main Street. Whether it's gatherings, cookie baking with Mrs. Claus, free movies, Santa's cottage visits, carriage rides, or others, these activities are offered so that families can enjoy the time of the season and the fellowship that comes with them.
One observer said: "It makes the community look like a Hallmark Movie and kicks the holidays off with a flurry of events."
We couldn't agree more!
