MARION — Marion held its annual Christmas in the Park celebration Friday night. This was the 22nd year for the event that kicks off the holiday season in Marion. The Marion Chamber of Commerce and Uptown Marion produced the event. “We love doing these community events and giving people an opportunity to come up town to see all of what Marion has to offer,” said Tami Schlamp, the chamber’s director of member services. Those in attendance enjoyed traditional activities like lighting the peace tree and live holiday music, along with Santa and Mrs. Claus. This year, there was also a shopping event called the Peppermint Walk.
