Veterans Park was lit up for the holidays. There was Christmas music playing and a hot chocolate bar, with whip cream, marshmallows, sprinkles and candy canes to keep everyone fueled as they celebrated in the cool night air. The night was filled with fun, lots of laughs from family and neighbors and lots of memories were being made. People in Kampsville can now enjoy a beautiful display of lights all because Trustees, Dennis Johnson, Rob Parameter, the royalty, committee members James Palmer, Marcia Agney and Debby Klunk helped make this beautiful display of holiday cheer for the village.
