Applications Accepted for 2021 Christmas Cards in the Park

Date of release:  October 13, 2021

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.  Organizations are recommended to use ½-inch plywood for their cards and 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. The Parks & Recreation Department will accept up to 25 replica Christmas cards. 

To obtain one of the 25 available spaces, organizations must complete an application form and either submit the form in person at the Parks office at 1400 H.C. Mathis Drive or by email to parkinfo@paducahky.gov.  Parks & Recreation will begin accepting applications on October 18 at 8 a.m. with October 28 at 4 p.m. as the deadline.  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. to the Parks Department. 

After the Christmas event, cards must be picked up from the Parks & Recreation Office by January 17, 2022. The cards will not be stored past that date. Visit Christmas Cards in the Park for the guidelines.
