Marshall Merry Mile Features Lights, Santa, Live Nativity
On Fridays and Saturdays throughout the Holiday Season, make it a point to visit Floral Hall after you drive thru the Magical Merry Mile. The beautifully restored Floral Hall (circa 1848), located at 720 Fair Street in Marshall, will play host to a wide array of exciting events each weekend during our Merry Mile Season.
A band of volunteers headed up by Cindy Thomas, has created a Winter Wonderland to cap off your visit. Santa Claus will be with us for two visits. The Jolly Old Elf will greet children in his beautiful sleigh from 6:00-8:00 pm on December 15 and 22. This festive setting will provide the perfect backdrop for your Holiday photos. A Postal Station will also be available to accept letters to Santa Claus.
The setting just outside Floral Hall, at the Old Maple Grove Church, will play host to a live nativity on December 7 and 8. The Nativity will be performed both evenings by Family Bible Church. As you enjoy your visit, plan to warm up with refreshments available in Floral Hall by the Calhoun County 4H Council.
New this year is the Memory Tree sponsored by Craig K. Kempf Family Funeral Homes. Beautiful personalized ornaments can be purchased for you to remember a family member or to pay tribute to friends or loved ones. The ornaments are $25.00 each with $10.00 of the purchase price being donated to The Food Bank of South-Central Michigan.
The 2018 Merry Mile is open Wednesdays through Sundays, including Christmas Eve and Christmas Day from 6:00-9:00 pm. Stay warm in your car with family and friends as you drive through the fairgrounds viewing all the amazing Christmas light displays. The expanded drive-thru holiday light extravaganza will feature many new and innovative holiday displays to light up your winter nights. Plan to join us often this season for this amazing family holiday tradition.
