The annual Village of Frankfort tree lighting ceremony will be held Thursday, Dec. 5, at 6:30 PM on Breidert Green.
This year's event will start at 6:30 p.m., a half hour earlier than usual, in order to accommodate youngsters visiting Santa.
Each year, downtown Breidert Green comes alive with thousands of lights for this old-fashioned tree lighting event.
“Bring the family to downtown Frankfort and experience our tree lighting event complete with refreshments and enjoy the holiday music of the Hickory Creek Middle School Chorus," said Frankfort Mayor Jim Holland. "In addition, volunteers from the Lincoln Way Interact Club will serve refreshments. Of course, as usual, Santa will be arriving to greet the youngsters.”
Holland pointed out that the tree lighting "kicks off a weekend of holiday cheer in Frankfort."
"The annual House Walk, sponsored by the Frankfort Historical Society, is scheduled for Dec. 6, the annual Christkindl event, sponsored by the Frankfort Historic Business Association, is scheduled for Dec. 7 and Dec. 8, and the Midnight Madness shopping spree, sponsored by the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce, is scheduled for Dec. 13," he said. "We invite everyone to experience the holiday season in Frankfort.”
A complete listing of holiday events is available on the Village website and the Frankfort Historic Business Association website.
