Christmas on the River (COTR) is an annual event that is in its 45th year. It is a holiday celebration with several events during four days-main events are always the first weekend in December. We celebrate with a "Special child" and the announcement of our "St. Nick". We have a reading of the Christmas Story and lighting of the park with a Santa visit, then on Friday and Saturday we have Christmas in the Canebrake, candlelit tours of historical homes, Canebrake children's plays, the Alabama State BBQ Cook-Off, Fair in the Square arts and crafts show, a day parade and a nautical night parade with a fireworks show and semi-formal Gala on the Tombigbee.
