A week from Sunday will be the annual Bethalto Spirit Christmas Walk, and organizers are putting finishing touches on the event.  There will be a Christmas concert performed by Bethalto Spirit Choir and Orchestra at 3 pm at First Baptist Church on Moreland Road, and then the streets of Prairie, West Central, and Oak Street will be open for pedestrians to enjoy the Victorian-era decorations.

Bethalto Spirit Choir Director Jeff Allsman says the venue for the concert has changed this year.

Allsman comments

You can visit Father Christmas and enjoy wassail, roasted chestnuts, and many other holiday treats at the walk from 4-7pm.  All activities are free.  For more information call 377-6030.
