Christmas in the City’s annual community tree lighting event WILL still take place this evening! This is an outdoor event, and allows plenty of space for social distancing. Gather at the tree on the corner of Summit and Central for a short performance by the Cowley Singers and the lighting of the tree! Several downtown businesses will also be having Holiday Open Houses from 5-7. Those present at the tree lighting this evening will receive the first clue for the Christmas Medallion, sponsored by Arkalalah, before the general public! It will be posted at the tree lighting event for event goers to view!
They will also livestream this event so that anyone who cannot attend will be able to watch.
