SCOTTSBORO, Ala. - Downtown Scottsboro has already decked the city with bows of holly, just in time for this year's Jingle Bell Square. It's a community Christmas event they've held for the past three years.

"Last year we had over 3,000 people to come during the time. It was supposed to have went from 5-8:30 p.m. and ended up about an hour longer than what we expected.  So it's packed on the square when people come," said Buddy Phillips of the Jingle Bell Square committee.

This year's lineup will include food vendors, horse and buggy rides, a kid's corner for cookie and ornament decorations, and free pictures with Santa.

"All of the merchants on the square are going to be opened late, so that people can shop for Christmas. Get your last-minute Christmas ideas right here on the square," says Phillips.

This event is a great opportunity to gather the community for fellowship at the historic square.

"With the stuff that happened in Rosalie, it's just a way for people to get out and forget about what's going on around the area right now and just have fun and enjoy time together."

Jingle Bell Square will be this Saturday from 5-8:30 p.m. in the Jackson County Square.
