Murphy is Awash in Christmas Cheer
City of Murphy’s 10thannual Christmas in the Park was held Dec. 6, at the Murphy Municipal Complex. The popular sidewalk parade included a myriad of participants wreathed in Christmas cheer. The parade is a judged event. First Baptist Church Murphy won Best in Show in the church/civic category and Foot and Ankle Consultants won Best in Show in the business category.
The line formed early for photos with Santa. Those in line to discuss their wish list with the special guest from the North Pole were able to enjoy viewing the entries for the recycled tree decorating contest which were located in the lobby of Murphy City Hall. Murphy Veterans Tribute was the winner of this contest.
Located behind City Hall was a sparkling winter wonderland where attendees could dine from food trucks, visit with reindeer, make Christmas crafts, roast marshmallows and much more. Though the weather for this event might have been a bit frightful, those who popped their umbrellas and donned rain boots found the Christmas spirit delightful.
