In addition to the Christmas in the Park light display sponsored by Paducah Power System, organizations in Paducah and McCracken County can place replicas of large greeting cards in Noble Park.
The Christmas Cards in the Park tradition involves the placement of brightly decorated greeting cards, no larger than 4 feet wide by 8 feet high. The cards should be designed to be displayed at the 8 feet high and 4 feet wide position. The Paducah Parks & Recreation Department will provide the posts to set up the cards, the personnel to install them, and lighting. Organizations are recommended to use ½-inch plywood for their cards.
Paducah Parks and Recreation only holds 25 spaces for replica Christmas cards. To obtain a space, organizations must complete an application form and submit to Parks and Recreation Services in person at 1400 HC Mathis Drive, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org, on or before the deadline. Parks & Recreation will begin accepting applications on October 18 at 8 a.m. Deadline to submit an application is October 28 at 4 p.m. Once approved it is the responsibility of the organization to coordinate a drop off time for their Christmas Card no later than Friday November 12 at 4 p.m., otherwise they will forfeit their reserved spot. Cards must be dropped off at the Parks & Recreation Department at 1400 HC Mathis Drive.
After the Christmas event, cards must be picked up from the Parks & Recreation Office no later than January 17, 2022. Christmas cards will not be stored past that date.
