The approximately week-long process of taking down holiday decorations in downtown Hannibal officially began on Monday.

With the temperature above freezing Monday in Hannibal it wasn’t a good day for snowmen. However, the disappearance of snowmen on North Main Street had nothing to do with the warmer air.

Members of the Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department were beginning the process of taking down holiday decorations from along North Main Street.

Snowmen were being loaded into the bed of a truck. They were then transported to a storage site.

A bucket truck will next be utilized to remove wreaths from light poles and lights from tree branches.

Parks Department personnel estimated it will take around a week to remove all the decorations from along North Main, Broadway and Central Park.
