What's better than the build up before Christmas?
The scent of evergreens are lingering in the air, kids are bundling up a little more at their bus stops and holiday commercials are already in full swing. But what sets Florence apart is our annual tree lighting festival
to welcome the holiday season.
Hundreds gather at the Gazebo Park in Old Town and kids have a certain sparkle in their eyes. They know what's soon coming down the lane and into their homes on Christmas Eve. Florence gets us all in the mood on December 3rd at 4:30pm for the Annual Florence Community Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration. A beautiful evergreen tree, donated this year by Sam and Carol Saiia, will be placed in the town center and lit to the hilt with hundreds of glowing colors.
Be sure to arrive on time as Santa and even Mrs. Claus will arrive at the Gazebo to welcome Christmas to Florence. Children of all ages will enjoy their picture with Santa, candy canes, hot chocolate and everything that brings the Christmas spirit to their hearts.
