Marion’s only drive-thru holiday light display featuring animated characters. Thursday through Sunday nights 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., except week of Christmas every night. Live Nativity on Saturday and Sunday nights. Admission $6 per car.
This annual free event kicks off with a special showing of a favorite holiday movie. After the short film, organists will play a selection of favorite holiday tunes on the theatre’s Mighty Wurlitzer Organ. Join in and sing-a-long with the music or just sit back and savor the golden voice of the Mighty Wurlitzer. Donations will be received for the organ repair fund.
Ring in the New Year in Marion’s Historic Downtown. Spend the day enjoying the many quaint shops and one-of-kind local restaurants before beginning your New Year celebration.
The crowds begin to gather near the Courthouse at 11:30 p.m. to watch the large “popcorn” ball drop at the stroke of midnight, followed with a New Year’s-worthy display of fireworks. Free hot chocolate and activities from 11:00 p.m. to midnight.
