The Covington County Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for its annual Christmas in the Park.  The Bettie Robertson Park in Collins will soon be transformed by thousands of glittering lights on display throughout the Christmas season.
According to Chamber Executive Director Marie Shoemake, this year will include several new displays.
“This is a positive thing for our community,” said Shoemake.  “It has a good economic impact on Covington County and it is something everyone can enjoy.”
Shoemake noted that the chamber is seeking volunteers to help with the event which is held each Thursday, Friday and Saturday night during the Christmas season.
“We are also taking memorials which can be purchased by calling the chamber office,” Shoemake said.
This year’s display will be open November 24-December 31 on Thursday-Saturday nights from 5-9 p.m.
