On Dec. 7, the Christmas Fair will be set up inside city hall as well as outside in Heritage Square from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be craft and food vendors. Be sure to bring your camera to get a picture with Santa from 1 to 3 p.m.

Also on Dec. 7, the Taylor Parks and Recreation Department will hold a tree lighting ceremony at 8 p.m. in Heritage Square. This year will feature a 30-foot lighted Christmas tree located in Heritage Square. The tree was purchased with donations raised through fundraising efforts by the Taylor Area Ministerial Alliance.
