Community Christmas at Sims Park

Thursday, December 14, 2023

Enjoy a night with family, friends, and fellow residents celebrating the holiday season at Johnnie Sims Park! Families can enjoy pictures with Santa, holiday treats, crafts, and the 8th Annual Snowball Drop. The Snowball Drop is a man-made blizzard of 8,000 ping pong balls being dropped from above by Santa himself! Winning snowballs have a number that correlates with a prize supplied by our generous sponsors.

Our regularly scheduled Movies at Meyer Park is being relocated to Johnnie Sims Park for a special Community Christmas event:
