Pittsfield & PCTV Team Up for Virtual Tree Lighting Ceremony

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Pittsfield Community Television has teamed up with Pittsfield's Recreation Program to air a Virtual 2021 Holiday Tree Lighting.
"The holiday tree lighting is one of our most beloved and memorable occasions in the city of Pittsfield. Traditionally, it's the time of the year when we all gather today and reflect on the beauty of the season. Though I'm disappointed that we won't be able to gather this year, the tree stands as a reminder of the many good things that are still around us.  It's my hope that each of us will find a way to recognize and cherish those special things in our lives," said Mayor Linda Tyer. "Thank you to all who dedicated their time, energy, and talents to make this an amazing event for our community."
PCTV will present the tree lighting at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 3. The program will air on PCTV Access Pittsfield Channel 1301, PCTV Select, and the Pittsfield Community Television Facebook page. The program will also be simulcast on Lanesborough Community Television, Dalton Community Television, and Community Television of the Southern Berkshires. 
The show will feature the Berkshire Hills Chorus, Kids 4 Harmony, and the Eagles Band Brass Ensemble. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be making a special appearance.
