Paducah Planning Downtown Winter Wonderland'
By Chris Taylor
Paducah, KY – Paducah hopes to create a winter wonderland around its downtown skating rink this year. Planners hope to install a concession stand to sell soups and hot drinks, have Christmas trees for sale nearby, and even welcome Santa Claus to visit the three Saturdays prior to the holiday. Paducah Parks Services Director Mark Thompson says he thinks the added services will bring a more local flavor to the event, which opens November 13th. According to the Paducah Sun, 25,000 people are expected to visit the rink this winter.
