Nick McWilliams reporting – A yearly staple of the New Philadelphia community, Christmas in the Park will not take place in 2020.

Entering its 24th year, the event turns Tuscora Park into a decked-out Christmas destination through McInturf Realty.

While plans were initially to change the format to a drive-thru platform like some local parades this year, with coronavirus cases still running rampant, the realtor pulled the plug.

The event is slated to return next year with standard festivities at this point.
