For the 5th year, The Logansport Parks & Recreation Department and its Foundation, will be offering a holiday display of lights at Spencer Park for the community and the surrounding area. Many sponsoring organizations and businesses are a part of this very special event. Christmas In the Park’s opening night will take place on Friday, November 26th and will end January 2nd. The lights will remain on from dusk to dawn.
 
Before you go, some things to know:
  • Visitors will enter from East Broadway and Cass Plaza Road. As you enter Christmas In the Park, drive slowly, don’t pull over in any parking areas, and people MUST remain in their vehicles for their own safety.

  • Monday and Tuesday evenings are for pedestrians ONLY -NO VEHICLES. Pedestrians must stay on the roadway, and not enter the green space due to guy & electrical wires which pose a danger to pedestrians. Pedestrians may park either on the north side of High Street, or in the old Rural King parking lot. People may NOT park on the boulevard.
  • Wednesdays through Sunday nights will be for Vehicles ONLY to drive through. As always, pedestrians are not allowed on these nights due to safety issues.

  • Donations for the event will be gratefully accepted online at https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=CNSD2E8KKWBJL

  • No volunteers will be on duty.

  • Holospex 3D glasses will be handed out at the sponsoring businesses. New holospex glasses will be available as the supply of each are depleted at the sponsoring business. To collect them all, participants must go to that business to pick up their own holospex. Watch the Pharos Tribune ads or listen to the radio stations of Ironhorse Broadcasting to learn which businesses you’ll need to go to each week.

  • Homeowners on Broadway Boulevard are being encouraged to decorate their homes as well, since vehicles will use Broadway to enter Christmas In the Park.
 
Spencer Park’s High Street Entrance will be closed to vehicle traffic beginning November 5th,  until the lighting décor has been removed. Daytime park users should plan to park their vehicles on the north side of High Street or near the lower pavilion to utilize the park. The Parks Department has requested that park users please stay away from the Christmas décor in the Park. Once again, it could pose a danger due to guy wires as well as electrical wires. We do ask that all daytime walkers please stay on the sidewalk and roadway. Questions can be directed to the Parks Administrator, Janet Fawley at 753-6969 or e-mail at parksadministrator@cityoflogansport.org.
