GALLIPOLIS — Gallipolis City Park is a little brighter, a little earlier than normal.
The Gallipolis In Lights group of volunteers recently decorated a patriotic tree in the park in honor of the presidential election and as a tribute to veterans.
Prior to the election, the group posted via its Facebook page, “We encourage everyone to drive by and check it out! We are proud to be Americans and encourage you all to exercise your right to vote!”
The tree sits in the background of the Spirit of the American Doughboy Memorial in Gallipolis City Park and is illuminated in red, white and blue light balls.
Gallipolis In Lights is busy preparing the park for the Christmas season. Though there will be no tree lighting ceremony or tree walk this year, the park will be illuminated for onlookers to enjoy.
Veterans Day is this Wednesday, Nov. 11.
