As the sun sets, head to Post Office Square for the Annual Holiday Tree Lighting. Belfastians will begin gathering around the tree at sunset. Attendees will enjoy carols performed by local school choirs and can sip on hot chocolate provided by the Belfast Community Co-op. Shortly after dark, Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive on a Belfast Fire Department engine to greet the hundreds of eager children and adults. Mayor Eric Sanders will lead the countdown from 10 till the tree lights magically come on.
Thank you to the many volunteers, the City of Belfast, Belfast Community Co-op, Belfast Parks and Recreation, Belfast Public Works, Belmont Boatworks, Central Maine Power, Harborwalk Restaurant Reynolds Electric, Robbins Lumber, and WBFY 100.9 Belfast Community Radio for your support in pulling this anticipated event together.
