Christmas tree lighting set for Dec. 7
The Village of Holland and the Community Development Committee will present the 10th annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at 6:45 p.m., Thursday, December 7, at Strawberry Acres Park.
The evening kicks off at 6:45 p.m. with a performance of holiday songs by the Springfield High School brass band and choir, which will perform by the tree at the intersections of Mc- Cord, Angola and Clarion roads.
Pastor Todd Milner of Providence Lutheran will offer a blessing and afterward, Holland Mayor Mike Yunker with the help of area children will light the tree at 7 p.m.
New this year will be a parade immediately following the tree lighting. Decorated vehicles and floats will proceed down Clarion Avenue past the tree and continue south on McCord Road. The parade will conclude with the arrival of a jolly old elf from the North Pole.
