The Tree Lighting will take place at the corner of Front and State Streets by The Santa House Downtown.  Prior to the Tree Lighting from 5-7pm, Santa will be in his house for children to visit and tell him what they want for Christmas. Santa will have hours from 1-3pm on Saturday, November 30 also.

To kick off the Tree Lighting, there will be carolers and a hot cocoa wagon with cookies to get everyone in the spirit of the holiday season.

Small Business Saturday Shop Hop is an effort to support local shops that make our communities strong.  This event encourages people to Shop Small and brings more holiday shopping to small businesses.
