The City of Forney is excited to announce that Community Park, 241 S. FM 548, will now be host to the City’s premier holiday event, “Christmas in the Park” on December 2. Much like its counterpart in Downtown, “Christmas in the Park” will offer an atmosphere of holiday spirit unmatched, but unlike in previous years, “Christmas in the Park” will provide an area not only more easily accessible for residents but also safer.
With the additional space available in Community Park, the City has been able to add a number of new activities for families in 2017. The main attraction that most are excited for is, of course "Forney on Ice". This 66' x 44', Candy Land-themed ice rink will be unlike anything else the City has ever done during its Christmas event. The rink will open November 24 and remain open through January 2, 2018.
In addition to "Forney on Ice", the City is also excited about the addition of our Christmas tree decorating contest. . The decorating contest sponsored by Lowe’s in Forney, provides an opportunity for businesses, organizations and families to display their decorating skills and spread holiday cheer throughout the park this year. Participants will be able to decorate the trees from November 24 – December 1 at Community Park and will be on display through January 2, 2018. The cost to participate is $65, but ALL proceeds will be donated to charity.
