Alton Marketplace is getting in the Christmas spirit, and is putting out a call for volunteers to help decorate Downtown Alton tomorrow morning. Anyone interested in helping deck out the area is asked to meet at the Riverbender Community Center, which will be the site of the annual Green Gift Bazzar later this month.

Alton Marketplace Executive Director Sara McGibany says the plan is to wrap the poles and string lights in the islands along Third Street.

McGibany comments


If you cannot make it tomorrow at 10:30am, there will be a second opportunity a week from Saturday, at which time the remainder of the area will be decorated with newer items, purchased after the organizers see what is still needed.
