Tree Lighting Happened, Despite Weather Challenges

It wasn't the "standing room only" crowd we normally see with the lighting of the county Christmas tree, but then temps were in the freezing range and rain came and went through Friday evening (12/6/2013). 

The switch was thrown to light the beautiful Christmas tree, and then Santa went inside the historic Rutherford County Courthouse to greet the good little boys and girls.

A special thank you to Kathleen Herzog and the Main Street Murfreesboro/Rutherford County program for coordinating this downtown tradition. 

Santa In The Courthouse is scheduled from 6:00 to 8:00 each Friday evening on December 13th and 20th. In addition, Old St. Nick will be there Saturdays from noon to 4:00 in the afternoon on December 7th, 14th and 21st. It's all inside the courthouse, where it's cozy and warm. 

Sunday's Parade WILL Happen!

The threat of ice and snow seem to have slipped out of the local forecast for parade time Sunday.  In fact, temps will be near the mid 40s when the Murfreesboro Christmas Parade marches off from the intersection of Middle Tennessee Boulevard and East Main Street at 2:00 o'clock this Sunday afternoon.

Parade Coordinator Angie Walker suggested that everyone dress warm, bring a raincoat and umbrella.

"Hopefully, they won't be needed, but it's always good to be prepared."
