    Last year (I think?) you did a story on a couple that asked about putting ornaments on the tree, having folks bring one to add.  I left a comment on the WS Junction post to see about it, but didn’t hear back.  Just wondering, I thought it was a fun idea….

    Any sense on the time of the actual tree lighting? Thanks.

      Hi – it’s toward the very end of the event, probably after 5:15 pm, but in years past things have gone longer, shorter, much shorter …

    I see that my neighbor is the emcee this year.  Should be fun. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
