1121jingle5
Wayne’s Train gives free rides in downtown Gainesville at dusk.

A family-filled event included kiddie train rides and free horse-drawn carriage rides with the evening culminating in the lighting of the Main Street Market’s Holiday Chicken, which sits atop the building. This year’s lighting was accompanied by a sound and light show by Deb and Don Harkrider. Adults could also marvel at the beautifully lit trees adorning the square. Stores on the square decorated for the season and extended their hours, allowing shoppers extra time to find and purchase Christmas gifts.
