CHRISTMAS IN DOWNTOWN MARTIN – Members of the Martin Public Works Department (above) spent Wednesday morning prepping the city’s Christmas tree in Festival Park next to the gazebo in anticipation of the Christmas celebration planned Friday and Saturday. Santa Claus came by fire truck and police car last year to his house in Festival Park to greet all of the good little boys and girls. Santa’s first stop is planned for 1 p.m. at his house in Festival Park in downtown Martin Saturday. He will take orders and pose for pictures beginning at that time. Local entertainment will be provided Saturday including a performance by the Authentic Gospel Singers at 5 p.m. Horse and carriage rides will take place from 5-9 p.m. Friday and 1-9 p.m. Saturday. A tree-lighting ceremony is set for 5 p.m. Saturday at Festival Park. Everyone is invited to attend.
