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.
