Christmas Lights In The Village of Gilman Park "Party In The Park"

Starting December 9th at 5PM

Christmas Lights in the Village of Gilman park. This is there 7th year of decorating the ball park, campground and the area West of Gilman Cheese. Fred Romig had the vision that “If you build it, they will come”. He new some families would not be able to go to Irvine Park, Bentleyville, and other parks that were decorated with Christmas lights so he wanted to do something locally for people to enjoy. So Fred and some people got together and created the Christmas lights in the park.
Both parks have music playing in them from the time the lights are turned on, which is the Friday of hunting season, until the night they are turned off, which is the first weekend in January. Both parks can be either walked through or you can drive through them.
Every year we have had a “Party in the Park” where people get together and enjoy some comradery. This years “Party in the Park” will be held December 9th. It will start at 5 P.M. There will be 3 campfires, hayrides/wagon rides that go between the ball park and the campground park, Christmas Carols which will be sung by the Community Choir and the Northland Baptist Church, hot chocolate, cookies, and pizza which is donated by Nestle served by the Poplar Grove 4-H, and of course we have Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.
At 6 P.M. we will have the Super Cash drawing. People that have purchased a $100 ticket has a chance to win cash prizes.
At 7 P.M., we will be having fireworks.
Money for the Christmas lights and structures are all donated. Some people have purchased and donated structures for the parks There is a list of donators in each parks along with the people that have worked to put up the lights. For the last two years, the Gilman High School students have come down and helped put up the lights on all the trees in the parks.
This is a free event for families to come down and enjoy the Christmas lights and have some good times together.
