Welcome to Chillicothe, Missouri

 Festival of Lights' volunteers spent a few hours in Simpson Park recently to begin the task of taking down the park-wide holiday light display. It took the crew of volunteers, park, city and Chillicothe Municipal Utilities (CMU) staff a total of six weeks to get the lights up, but it usually only takes about one week to take them down, weather permitting. Chillicothe City Parks staff takes down and stores the large light displays, and CMU staff remove the large arches at the entrances to the park. All of the decorations should be removed by January 17. The Festival of Lights kicked off November 7, 2018, with a lighting ceremony the night of the Chillicothe Holiday Parade. CT Photo Angie Talken
