The case for holiday lights

by | Nov 19, 2020 | Latest

 Farmersville Lights, a planned Christmas celebra­tion that aims to give resi­dents and visitors to the city something to cheer during this year of the pandemic, drew some serious questions from a city council member, but it will go on as planned.

Councilman Dwain Mathers brought to light during the council’s Nov. 10 meeting concerns he had about the process that re­sulted in the Farmersville Lights celebration, while acknowledging that he vot­ed for the event this past month when the council ap­proved its creation.

Farmersville Lights is an event that will feature Christ­mas lights for the month of December along Farmersville Parkway, as well as holiday activities on the downtown square. Mathers questioned during the initial council discussion on the event in October the perception some residents might have about celebrating the holiday while so many residents and busi­nesses are suffering during the pandemic.
