This year Neely Farms will be bringing back the magic of Christmas for the Christmas Magic Festival that will be held in Robinson, Illinois on Cross Street Market, just on the south side of the court house this weekend on Friday the 19th, Saturday 2oth, and Sunday 21st, according to the Community Revitalization, the Beautification Committee Representation, and Mel McKinney.

All of these organizations are really excited to bring back this amazing festival following last year’s cancellation due to Covid-19. Like all of the years before Covid happened, the festival will have many things for families and other people to enjoy the entire weekend. They will have seasonal food, drinks, games for people to play, and there will even be ice skating for everyone to enjoy. At the end of the night the city Robinson will be officially lighting the decorations around the court house for everyone to see and enjoy.
