Holiday Happenings in Market Square

Despite the cold temperature and misty rain, train rides were among the offerings at the annual Happy Holiday Happenings Market Square in New Albany on Sunday. The New Albany Chamber of Commerce organized a wonderful gathering that has become a Market Square tradition. Other activities at the event included holiday crafts for children from 2 to 4pm, a cookie decorating contest at the Rusty Bucket, and horse and buggy rides sponsored by New Albany Realty and The New Albany Company.

Other activities included train rides, “Jingle Bell” carriage rides, cookie-decorating, craft tables and a recital of “The 12 Days of Christmas” at Starbucks. The event ended with a candlelight sing-a-long and tree-lighting ceremony led by Mayor Nancy Ferguson and the New Albany Chorus.
