Businesses and service clubs in Marshalltown put their creative talent to the test as they help the community kick off the holiday season on November 19–20. Tiny Tim Tree Festival participants adopt and decorate trees that are auctioned off, with the proceeds given to local charities.
After the auction people enjoy a holiday stroll of downtown streets and the lighting of the courthouse square. “Dancing lights are choreographed to music,” says Shannon Espenscheid, director of the Marshalltown Convention & Visitors Bureau. “People can tune their radios to enjoy the lights and music from the warmth of their cars.”
