[ARCHIVED] It’s Going to be a Jolly Holiday December 1 for Montgomery’s Annual Tree Lighting


Montgomery’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will take place on December 1st, 5p at Village Hall, 200 N. River Street, Montgomery. This is a free family event and is hosted jointly by the Village of Montgomery and the Greater Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce (GMACC).

The event will kick off with festive music performances from students from local schools, followed by the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus in fire trucks with sirens blaring. After the lighting of the Christmas tree, children can visit Santa and take some great holiday pictures with him. Don’t forget to enjoy holiday snacks provided throughout the evening by the GMACC (while supplies last).

New this year will be an elf workshop where holiday games and craft stations will be available for kids to enjoy. Also new, the Merry Mixer by Ozinga will be displayed in front of Village Hall for the event. The Merry Mixer will be decked out with more than 32,000 programmed lights on its signature red and white cement mixer and features animated light sequences and toe-tapping renditions of favorite holiday tunes.

The Village Hall will host the Festival of Trees that will turn all three levels of the Village Hall into a decorated holiday delight. Area businesses participate by decorating Christmas trees for everyone to enjoy, and visitors of all ages are invited to vote for their favorite tree. The Festival of Trees will continue until December 23rd during normal business hours.

Come out, celebrate the holidays and picture yourself here in Montgomery, IL!
