Merry Christmas: Message from the Mayor


Dear Friends –
It’s hard to believe that another year has almost passed, and the Christmas holidays are upon us! What a beautiful season this will be with all that our community has to offer like “Christmas in a Railroad Town” and the “Victorian Front Porch Tour,” plus all the events the Lewis Cooper Jr. Memorial Library, our Parks and Recreation Department, the Opelika City Schools and Main Street bring to the table this holiday season. Christmas is always a fun and glorious time in Opelika. For a full list of Christmas events, please visit our website at and take a look at the spotlight section. With more than 20 events throughout the season, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
I also invite you to shop locally. This helps sustain our local businesses and keeps your tax dollars here in our community. While you are out shopping, make sure to check out our new Christmas decorations around town. We have created great photo opportunities for you and your family to snap your favorite holiday memories. We’re inviting you to share those photos on social media and use the #myOpelikaChristmas.
As you enjoy this holiday season, let me encourage everyone to use moderation and common sense. If you drink, please do not drive! Always wear your seat belts and watch the speed limits throughout town. Use good judgement and make good choices so that you and your family can celebrate the holidays and prepare for joyous 2019.
May God’s blessings and peace be upon you and your family during this Christmas Season, and may He grant you a prosperous and happy New Year!

Warmest regards,
