Red Bud Community Tree Lighting Ceremony is this Friday

Santa’s big arrival will be at 6 p.m.

It’s almost time! This Friday night, Santa will finally make his grand appearance in Red Bud for the Community Tree Lighting Ceremony.

The ceremony will be held on Friday, Nov. 23 at 6 p.m. in the Red Bud City Hall Park. Come watch as Santa and his special helper magically light the Red Bud “Rockefeller” Christmas Tree.

Following the ceremony Santa will be available to visit with children in Santa’s Village (located in the Red Bud City Hall Park) until 8 p.m. He’ll be happy to listen to the lists of all the good boys and girls of any age.

There will also be free carriage rides as well as music provided by Tim Berg and the Kurtz Brothers. Balloon art by Diane Cross, the Balloonatic, will also be available.

Santa will also be available to meet with children in Santa’s Village on the evenings of Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 from 6-8 p.m.
