Lula still intends to hold its Christmas in the Park.
Lula’s Christmas in the Park will start at 4 p.m., Dec. 5, on the greenspace at the Lula Train Depot.
Teresa Heath, assistant clerk at Lula City Hall, said local churches and businesses will set up booths at the depot and give away free baked treats and other types of food.
“It’s Christmas; it’s time to give,” Heath said. “You’re not allowed to sell anything.”
Dennis Bergin, Lula city manager, said the Christmas festivities usually take place at Lula Veterans Park, but it has been moved to the depot to create ample space for social distancing.
“Ironically, the public has been asking for it (Christmas in the Park),” he said. “We canceled two festivals already with COVID. We think we can spread out the activities and allow for social distancing to take place. It’s got a great reception so far.”
“Anybody that wants to come is more than welcome,” Heath said.
