Christmas is in full effect in Murphysboro this year, and I couldn't be happier about it. The streets are strung with lights, and our local businesses have decorated with garland and bows, it is truly a winter wonderland. Be sure to visit the Town Center Park, where our First Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony was held earlier this month. It is a great place to sit and relax and enjoy the the display of lights and greenery, and Visit Santa at Santa's Cottage on December 16th @3pm. Afterward, enjoy an evening at the Historic Liberty Theater @6pm for a free showing of "The Santa Clause" hosted by Murphysboro Hometown Christmas and Murphy Wall State Bank & Trust. The Historic Hull House Inn has prepared a classic Christmas display as well to make sure all of our guests and town residents have no trouble at all finding their holiday spirit. We invite you to join us in a Small Town Christmas and all the festivities we have to offer this year, and many more to follow.
