MANSFIELD, OH - The Richland Carrousel Park held their annual "Christmas In The City" event on Friday evening, bringing lots of holiday cheer to downtown Mansfield with a variety of attractions to see.

"The carriages have shown up with two big Percheron horses, we have reindeer on the other side for all the children to pet, we have Santa Claus here for pictures, and of course, our gift shop is open for shopping," said Sharon Bishop, Co-Director of Richland Carrousel Park. "It's a great night to be in downtown Mansfield. People love this time of year, and they love coming to Mansfield because they are treated well. We pulled it together and we've waited all year for this night."

At 6 PM, the Christmas tree in front of the Carrousel building was lit with the help of Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker and Mix 106.1 Radio Host Tommy Barnes, who took turns at the microphone to help keep everyone entertained. 

"It brings us all together for the season," Bishop said. "We have to remember that the season is about love and kindness. That's what we have going on downtown. All the stores are doing something special. We're all in this together to make this an event."

The event ended at 8 PM Friday evening, but children will be able to visit Santa Claus at the Carrousel every weekend until Christmas.
