Holland Christmas tree lighting is Dec. 6
The Village of Holland and the Community Development Committee invite area residents to the 11th annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on Thursday, December 6, at the Lodge at Strawberry Acres.
The evening kicks off at 6:45 p.m. with a performance of holiday songs by the Springfield High School brass band, performing by the tree at the intersections of McCord, Angola and Clarion roads.
For the second year, there will be a parade immediately following the tree lighting. Decorated vehicles and floats will proceed from the alley behind the post office to the tree and continue south on McCord Road. The parade will conclude with the arrival of a jolly old elf from the North Pole.
Following the parade and tree lighting, residents are invited to visit the Lodge at Strawberry Acres where cookies and hot chocolate, donated by area businesses, will be served.
This year’s tree lighting also will feature the Chick-fil-A cow, photos with Santa, and an angel tree provided by the Dwelling Place.
Residents are invited to select from the angel tree a paper ornament with the name of a child in need.
Details on the child’s needs will be written on the card along with instructions on when to drop off the gift at the church, 8201 Angola Road, Holland.
