Dodge City Christmas event set for tonight
The third annual Dodge City Christmas celebration is set to begin tonight at 5 p.m., including a park lighting ceremony and visits with Santa.
Officials and residents will gather at Ray Park, just off Hwy. 69 behind town hall, for A Christmas to Remember to light the park and decorate in honor of residents who have passed away over the years.
“Folks come and decorate different areas in memory of their loved ones,” mayor Tawana Canada said. “We dedicate it to the many citizens of Dodge City who have passed away.”
The event begins at 5 p.m. with snacks, hot chocolate and children’s games.
Officials will also introduce the first-ever holiday light show Saturday night.
“It will be a great year and we grow more every year,” Canada said. “Come out, have fun and see Santa.”
The park will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 5-8 p.m. until December 30. It will also be open on New Year’s Eve.
Good Hope Christmas in the Park, parade
Check out Good Hope’s community-wide Christmas party today, starting with a parade that will culminate in an activity-filled afternoon at the Good Hope municipal park.
There’ll be kids’ activities, refreshments, a hay ride and photos with Santa. Stake out your spot along the parade route between the school and city hall at 1:30, then stick around after the parade to enjoy activities at the park. Best of all, there’s no admission charge.
Everyone who comes will get a ticket for a free bowl of chili, hot dog and drink — while supplies last. Additional refreshments will also be on sale at the park. There’s no set time the party has to end, so expect to stick around a while and enjoy the park.
“The weather will be really nice, and it’s just going to be a great day for everybody to get together,” said Good Hope mayor Corey Harbison. “Everybody is invited. Wherever you are, just jump in the car and come on down to Good Hope and join us. We just want everybody to have a chance to get together and wish everybody a merry Christmas.”
