Santa and Mrs. Claus will be the honored guests again this year at Battle Ground’s 29th annual Holiday Tree Lighting. This year’s free community event to kick-off the holiday season will take place on Friday, December 7 at the Battle Ground Community Center located in historic Old Town at 912 East Main Street.
Festivities begin at 5:30 pm with caroling led by the Battle Ground High School Jazz Choir. To the delight of all who are young and young-at-heart, Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive by Fire District 3 Engine. A presentation by Mayor Mike Dalesandro and guest Susan Boegli of the Battle Ground Community United Methodist Church will occur just prior to Santa leading the lighting of the tree.
After the tree lighting, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, the celebration moves indoors to the warmth of the community center where Santa and Mrs. Claus visit with children and pose for pictures – be sure to bring your cameras!
The North County Community Food Bank will serve free warm and tasty refreshments. Please join us in the spirit of giving by donating to the food bank – your cash donations help individuals and families right here in our community. Learn more at https://nccfoodbank.org.
The outdoor caroling and tree lighting will warm your heart, but the weather outside may be frightening so be sure to dress for rain, shine, or snow!
