DELBARTON – At a Delbarton City Council Meeting Monday, Nov 22, members of the Delbarton City Council discussed Christmas activities planned throughout December.
Tracy Slone was in attendance at the meeting to discuss Christmas plans.
On Friday Dec. 4, instead of a parade, Delbarton will have a Charlie Brown ‘Peanuts’ themed party at the Opry House. The party will start at 6:30 p.m.
The Charlie Brown Christmas movie will be played and Santa Claus will be in attendance. There will be food, games, and door prizes. Several businesses have donated door prizes. The event will be open to children 12 and under.
The party was planned instead of a parade because the parade has been cancelled several times in the past due to inclement weather.
A Walk through Bethlehem has been scheduled for Dec. 10 through 12. Walk through Bethlehem is an interactive play. The event features booths, different tents and farm animals. “It should be bigger. More people are interested in being in the interactive play this year,” Slone said.
The play will start at 6 p.m. and last until the crowds leave. “Hopefully it is as crowded as it was last year,” Slone said.
This year, the play is expected to expand. “We have added more. We will have more booths, tables, tents, and farm animals,” Slone continued.
People will tour the Walk Through Bethlehem in groups. Heated areas will be available to those waiting.“There will be fire pots around to deliver heat,” Delbarton Mayor, John Preece said.
The next Delbarton City Council meeting will be Monday Dec. 14 at 5 p.m.
