Glover Park Christmas Tree Lighting
Kick-off the holiday season with Santa and Mrs. Claus as they light the giant Christmas tree in Glover Park this Thursday, Dec. 5. Families are encouraged to arrive on the Square around 5 p.m. as local school choruses will perform Christmas carols. Santa will arrive at 5:20 p.m. to begin photos with children who eagerly wait to share this year’s wish list. While Santa will be available for photos at the gazebo until 8 p.m., he will take a quick break to light the tree at 6 p.m. For more information on this popular holiday tradition, click here.
