The annual downtown holiday tree lighting will be held in Riverfront Park on Friday, November 25 beginning at 5:30 pm. Mayor Pro Tem Earl Sheridan will host the Holiday Tree countdown and official lighting. For the second year, the Battleship North Carolina will also participate by lighting up the ship at the same time the tree is lit.
Support your local businesses by coming downtown early on Friday to do some shopping, then see the tree get lit. All on-street parking is free on Thanksgiving as well as on November 25!
