North Adams Tree Lighting Dec. 1

12:00AM / Tuesday, November 28, 2006

Celebrate the city's holiday season downtown kick-off on Dec. 1.
North Adams - Everyone is invited as the city of North Adams holds the annual city Christmas Tree Lighting on Friday Dec. 1 at 5:30 p.m. The tree lighting will take place at the foot of the large Christmas tree at the east end of Main Street, and is free and open to the public.

Mayor John Barrett III will throw the switch that turns on 100,000 colored and white holiday lights in the downtown area. There will be seasonal carols performed by vocalist Diane Maynard, and tunes by the award winning Drury Band, directed by Carl Jenkins.

The downtown illumination will be followed by the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus on the city's trolley-style bus, bearing goodie bags containing candy canes, coloring books and crayons for girls and boys.

Goodie bags will be given to the first 500 children at the stage.

The city trolley will operate a free route from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. with stops at Gallery 51 and the shops around the downtown area. The trolley will also travel to the Western Gateway Heritage State Park; the Visitor’s Center will be open, featuring the Ian Grey photography exhibit. The Visitor’s Center Gift Shop will be open as well. Across the courtyard, the North Adams Museum of History and Science will be open for the evening, as well as Northern Berkshire Creative Arts. For more information, contact the North Adams Mayor’s Office of Tourism at 413-664-6180
