Many Christmas Lights

Drive through Many’s Cultural District any night between now and Christmas, and you’ll enjoy the beautiful Christmas lights.

The Town of Many is all decked out for Christmas thanks to some hard-working guys who worked long hours to string up and place all the lights down town.

Some people have asked why the strings of Christmas lights no longer are strung across San Antonio Avenue as they were many years ago. The answer is simple. San Antonio Avenue is also a State highway, and the state no longer allows the lights to cross above the street.

These city workers always make the best of it and have found alternate ways to brighten San Antonio Avenue by circling the light poles with lights, putting up Christmas wreaths, lighted Christmas lanterns and bells. All in all, it’s a cheery drive that promises to put everyone in a jolly Christmas mood.

Many Mayor Ken Freeman said he’s proud of the city crew for their hard work. “We have a great staff and crew,” the mayor said. “I don’t know what we’d do without them. Thanks to their hard work, downtown Many is ready for Christmas.”

Those working for multiple long days to install the Christmas decorations are Jeremy Wilkerson, Joshua Darden, David Smith, Keaton Leach, Mark Oxley, and Christopher Mabou.

This year, to thank these men, Mayor Freeman gave them the honor of officially turning on the Christmas lights. Keaton Leach flipped the switch to light up the town.
