Shelby is gearing-up for its first-ever "A Night of Christmas Magic" this Sunday from 4-8pm. The holiday season festival in the downtown area is an expansion of the Med-Central Shelby Hospital "Festival of Lights", which starts at 4. Many more activities have been added, with Main Street and its businesses being decorated and lit-up. Kids' activities and holiday decor at businesses start at 5, and Mayor Marilyn John will light-up the Central Park trees and gazebo at 5:15. The Polar Express train brings Santa and Mrs. Claus to Shelby at 5:30 pm, and Jolly Old St. Nick will read the Polar Express story to children in Central Park. A Community Thanksgiving Church Service starts at 7pm at the Church of the Mazarene at 169 Mansfield Avenue. The event will prompt some street closings, and special parking arrangements. High School Avenue will be closed between East Main Street and the log cabin. The right turn lane on East Main leading onto High School Avenue will be closed. So will East Main between Mohican Street and Broadway/ Mansfield Avenue. Access to the BP gas statin and Domino's Pizza will be available. Parking will be available behind Shelby City Hall, at Marvin Memorial Library, at First United Methodist Church at 18 South Gamble Street, on Blackfork Street, at the Municipal Utilities Office, and on High School Avenue. Shelby's "A Night of Christmas Magic" includes a toy drive for Shelby Christian Outreach's Communuity Christmas program, and a winter outerwear collection for Shelby Helpline Ministries.
