Christmas on Bankhead will take place Thursday in downtown New Albany starting at 5:30 p.m.

There will be horse and carriage rides, hot cocoa and pictures with Santa in his sleigh in front of the Coca-Cola mural.

The tree will be lit in Cooper Park at 6 p.m. sharp.

Magnolia Civic Center has organized live music from local carolers, Clint Reid and Midnight Train. Union County Library staff is bringing a wagon full of take home crafts for families to enjoy.

Toys and monetary donations will be accepted for the New Albany Gazette’s Sharing at Christmas program.

“Everyone involved has created a fun holiday event for the community to enjoy, and we hope to see our locals out having a fun time with family and friends,” said Billye Jean Stroud, Main Street and Community Development director.
