What’s Christmas without Jack Frost?

So, it was feeling a lot like Christmas in downtown Troy Sunday afternoon when Shelia Jackson and Friends took center stage for Christmas Carols on the Square.

The event was hosted by Downtown Troy and featured Christmas music on stage, dancing, face painting, kids’ games, trolley rides and the fun and fellowship that is a hallmark of gatherings on the downtown square.

Jackson said it was a wonderful, Christmas-like day in downtown Troy.

“Although it was a little cool, we had a good crowd and everyone had a good time,” Jackson said. “It’s always good when people come together to celebrate, especially at Christmastime, and, especially, now that we have opportunities to come together after almost two years of being apart.”
