The 2014 Christmas in the park celebration included the McMillen High School Dazzlers dance team.

For the first time ever, Murphy’s Christmas in the Park will feature a parade.

The yearly community wide event is scheduled for 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3 in the Murphy Municipal Complex.

The parade opens the seasonal event with a 5 p.m. walk off from the open area behind the Fire Department.

The quarter-mile route then winds along the sidewalk adjacent to the city pond, then turns along city hall court over the bridge toward the large practice fields where it again turns toward the grassy mall directly in front of the city hall entrance where booths, exhibits and the community Christmas tree will be set up.
