CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY **
The Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is sponsored yearly by the Recreation and Parks Department. The tree, a Norway Spruce, was presented by the Woman’s Club to the City and has become part of a growing community tradition.
Participants should gather at the AK Bissell Park Pavilion for seasonal music and light refreshments beginning at 6:30 pm. After the program, participants will walk to the Commemorative Walk on the east side of the Oak Ridge Library parking lot for a brief ceremony ending with the lighting of the tree. In the event of inclement weather, the program will begin in the Civic Center Gymnasium (Shep Lauter Room).
**Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony has been canceled for December 2020.
