The tree lighting ceremony will be celebrated with a unique man-made tree located in Sturgis Park on November 26th at 5:30pm. Local businesses will be participating with Black Friday Sales and celebrating the occasion with their own holiday decorations.

The Itinerary for the tree lighting ceremony will begin with musician Nick Haglich and a visit from longtime local Santa, Richard Mills, followed by an invocation and a welcoming speech to the ceremony. Afterwards, a countdown will initiate for the lightning of the tree, with all the other park decorations to be lit at the same time as the tree. The Town Manager, Rick Pollitt, will then read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” aloud. And finally, to conclude the ceremony, Margot & Gabe Resto will perform a few holiday songs, and invite all to join in a sing-along of “We Wish You A Merry Christmas.” The ceremony is expected to conclude around 5:45pm, but skating will continue, and hot cholate will be served under the pavilion.
