Christmas in the Park (Updated)

This post updates my earlier post concerning the Grand Lighting of the Christmas lights at Winner's Circle Park in Flowood.  The big event is December 6.  Contestant teams for the Chili Cook Off start setting up at noon; judging takes place at 5 p.m.  The rest of the festivities begin at 5:30 p.m.  According to Winner's Circle Park's Facebook page, Santa will be in attendance to oversee the grand lighting.  There will be a special performance by the Flowood Elementary Choir and the Actors Playhouse & Company.  Further, the train will also be back to shuttle good boys and girls around the park.  

Attending the grand lighting is free.  However, you have the option of paying $5 for up to three "samples" of chili.  Drinks will be sold for $1 a piece.  

Weather.com is predicting a high of 68 degrees and a low of 55 on Thursday.  So don't bother bringing your sled.  

Santa and the train will also be in the Park on the following dates:  December 7, 8, 10-15, 17-21.
