Posted on Dec. 01 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications DirectorThis weekend, singers from Marion elementaries and McCulloch Junior High will be spreading holiday cheer at a special event, Winter Magic in the Gardens of Matter Park.
Saturday, Dec. 3, will be a day full of fun at the Gardens!
Families and groups are invited to come help decorate trees at the Gardens. (Click here to register for your tree.) From noon to 4 p.m., participants can help make decorations from noon to 4 p.m. at the Garden House, and/or bring some of their own decorations for their tree. Decorations should be environmentally friendly and bird-friendly (think popcorn, acorns, berries, pinecones … ).
>> Then, at 6 p.m., a tree lighting ceremony is planned, and singers from Marion Community Schools will be caroling at that time.
After the tree lighting, you can explore the gardens and enjoy the decorated trees, as well as hot chocolate and a bonfire in the meadow area.
The public is invited to this free event. Come out and explore the Gardens and enjoy a performance by some of our talented young singers!
