Directly following the Lanternlight Parade, the Mayor’s Tree Lighting sparkles at Park Square, the town green, which now features a glowing pavilion, perfect for the holiday celebration. Mayor Brian, together with Santa, and community representatives will light the twinkling lights of the city’s 20-foot holiday tree. The festivities include caroling, cocoa and visit with jolly old St. Nick. It’s a true celebration of community.
