Hanging of the Greens


Every November, Community Development and volunteers decorate the downtown area with lighted Christmas wreaths and garland. Various civic organizations as well as school groups work together during this festive event. It promotes the holiday just in time for the lighted Christmas parade held the first Saturday in December each year. 
If interested in assisting in this special day, please contact the Community Development office at 940.872.6246.
