City workers have put the finishing touches on Santa’s Workshop in preparation of the 22nd Christmas in the Park event. The festivities kick-off the holiday season on Nov. 26. The annual Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony will be at 7 p.m. at Cornerstone Park, 215 N. Center. School children will perform holiday music and Santa will make a special appearance as one lucky individual is selected to flip the switch to turn on thousands of lights in the park.
