As the lights lit up, so did the faces of many residents who stopped by to enjoy Lovett Park's Winter Wonderland. Stopping by the decoration display has become a tradition for many people, as it adds a festive landmark to the town for the month of December.
The Winter Wonderland Display was started by Marge Champion and Char McNally in 2000 and the two have carried on the tradition since then.
"We do it every year, " Champion said the decorating is done for the start of December, "We have help from family members and friends when they're able to. Char and I do the painting and making the displays."
The duo just wanted to do something nice for the kids and community.
Champion noted a lot of the decorations are paid for during the grand opening of the Winter Wonderland each year, "We sell cookies and hot chocolate and the proceeds from that money go towards buying more lights, paint and boards for our display."
The lights will be on at Lovett Park up until the end of December.
