Soon the streets will be filled with Christmas cheer in downtown Colusa for its annual Christmas Tyme in Colusa event to be held on Friday, December 6th, 2013 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
The theme for this year is aptly named, Santa’s Toyland Village, given by Mary Lou Kittle whose idea was chosen when the community was encouraged to submit suggestions. She received a $100 gift certificate to Chung Sun Market.
