Holiday Lane: Lights in the Park

A new light show in Jim Barnett Park, called Holiday Lane, will be offered for our community to experience from the safety of their vehicle. The lights and holiday scenes will be installed around the road that meanders through Jim Barnett Park from the amphitheater area (Oak Drive), past the dog park and ending near the Rec Center (War Memorial Drive).

Holiday Lane will be available to drive through from 5:00-8:30 pm, seven days a week, November 30-December 20, 2020. The show is free to enter and will feature beautiful light designs, characters, and holiday decorations the entire family will love. Also, Santa is planning to stop by on weekends.

US Army Band “Pershing’s Own”

The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” presents a FREE concert of symphonic works.

The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” has been the premier musical organization of the U.S. Army since 1922 when Army Chief of Staff General of the Armies John J. “Black Jack” Pershing directed that the band be organized, built on the tradition of the European military bands he had heard during the First World War. “Pershing’s Own” provides music support for the leadership of the United States, to include all branches of government, and to a wide spectrum of national and international events in support of Soldiers and their Families, public diplomacy, memorial affairs, community and international relations, and recruiting initiatives. Its mission is to help connect the Army with the American people. Its Soldiers represent all of the heroic men and women who stand around the world in defense of our freedom.

Through their musical education, continual training, and masterful performance these outstanding Soldiers truly embody the excellence that is found across America’s Army.

REMINDER: Ticketed patrons must be seated 15 minutes prior to the start of the performance. In the event that all tickets are distributed for this performance, any unclaimed seats will be made available to patrons waiting on-site at that time.
