Holiday Events Downtown Portland Tree Lighting November 2012

Make plans for the day after Thanksgiving to attend the Portland Tree Lighting ceremony.

The Holiday Festivals are starting to begin here in Portland town. Soon sleigh bells will be ringing and carolers singing.

November 23 -- Portland Tree Lighting Ceremony| begins 5:30pm FREE

This is the 28th year of the Portland Tree Lighting Ceremony.

Be Merry at the Square! On the busiest shopping day of the year, the day after Thanksgiving, thousands of Portlanders will gather at Pioneer Courthouse Square to celebrate the official start of the season by lighting the City’s spectacular 75ft Douglas-fir tree provided by Stimson Lumber Company.

This year will feature a holiday sing-a-long featuring Portland’s own Thomas Lauderdale with members of Pink Martini and friends. With the 75 ft fir tree, 14,000 colorful lights and a festive community sing-a-long, this is an event you won’t want to miss in Portland’s living room.

By Thanksgiving, a tall Christmas tree occupies the center of the square, with a tree-lighting ceremony [Portland Tree Lighting Ceremony] held each year on the Friday evening after Thanksgiving. Another Christmas event in the square is Tuba Christmas. This is a celebration featuring nearly 200 tuba and euphony players who perform a medley of holiday songs -- Wikipedia

I plan on being at Portland's Tree Lighting Ceremony, so watch for the photos!! I REALLY hope they're planning on using colored lights this year. They've been going with white for years now -- BORING!!

Yeah...Christmas is coming...actually, I don't think I am ready for it at all lol :)!  Looks like Portland's Tree lighting ceremony is just the ticket to get into that Christmas Spirit Carla :)!  Of course that's a bit far for me, so I will have to attend something here :)!

Carla,  I love tree lighting events ... I always get goose bumps and my eyes water with tears of joy .. and then the shopping frenzy starts and kills the spirit of Christmas.  This is a great Localism post ... nicely done.

I love the colored lights too Carla and I can't wait to see the photos.  I'm thinking I'll be in the spirit of Christmas really soon this year.  I'm way ahead of my norm for "things done" already.
