"The "Miracle in the Park" is a great theme this year", Ervin said. After the parade, Santa, played again by Public Works Director Tim Perry, will be at the Anderson County Courthouse to get wish lists from kids.

Santa set up for the kids on a chair near the Cook Mansion steps, with floodlights aimed at him from one side to give parents an easier time taking photos of their children.

Big G's and Henry Concessions will provide food along with vendors selling boiled peanuts, deep fried caramel apples, kettle corn, funnel cakes, fried Oreos, hot chocolate and much more. City workers put up the tree on Monday. The outdoor movies are usually played at Reagan Park.
