The Fourth Annual Christmas Tree Lighting will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 2 in Ferryville at the Observation Deck/River View Park in the center of the Village of Ferryville and everyone is invited.
Santa will be on hand to hear children’s Christmas wishes, Christmas carols will be sung, and treats enjoyed as the lights of the holiday season are lit.
Santa arrives at 5:30 p.m. and then at 6 p.m., the elves light the Christmas tree for the season.
The De Soto High School chorus will lead everyone in Christmas carols while all can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and have holiday cookies and treats. Plus, there are gift bags for children
The Ferryville Tourism Council hosts this event each year. The holiday tree is selected by village ‘elves,’ who trek out to Hillcrest Orchards and Christmas Tree Farm on Highway 61 in Gays Mills to get “just the right tree”. Next comes the decorating and lights so everything is ready for the Dec. 2 big moment when the lights officially come on and stay on for the season.
Don’t miss out. Dress warmly and be ready for a really good time.
