Festival of Lights in the Park
Drive through the Marion County’s original Christmas in the Park in Pleasantville’s Cora Shadle Park. Beginning at 5:00 pm each night, Cora Shadle Park will be lit up with festive, lighted Christmas displays.
Christmas Magic is sponsored this year by Knoxville Hospital & Clinic, McKay Group, Peoples Bank, Pleasantville EMS, and Smokey Row. Santa’s Helper sponsors are Pleasantville Casey’s General Store, Checkerboard Restaurant, Pleasantville Baptist Church, Mason Funeral Home, Murphy Tower Service, and Stone Ridge Dental. Drummer Boy sponsors include Pleasantville Weekly/Marion County Tribune, Stuyvesant, Benton & Judisch, Ivan McCormick, Lakefront Living LLC Custom Engraving & Gifts, Myers Insurance, and Stubbs Propane.
Santa & Mrs. Claus in the Park
Because of COVID-19 social restrictions, seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus in the park will be a little different this year. Instead of gathering in the shelter house, Santa and Mrs. Claus will meet you at your car in the parking lot from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to stop by to talk with Santa and get a cookie from Mrs. Claus to take home.
