Newberry Christmas Tree Lighting
Between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m., visitors will see the Southern Victorian Society in full period costume caroling at the tree and local organizations will be giving away a variety of goods such as free homemade cookies, goodie bags, candy canes, and more.
The Official Tree Lighting Ceremony of Main St. Lights begins at 6:15 pm, accompanied by the Newberry Middle School and Pomaria-Garmany Elementary School choirs. This year our mayor will light up the tree with a special guest from WISTV. Help us light our Community Christmas Tree, located in front of Community Hall, through festive song and fellowship.
After the lighting peruse downtown and listen to our strolling carolers, the Newberry College Madrigal Choir, perform familiar Christmas tunes. Play in the fluttering faux snow at our snow machines in Memorial Park. See the Lights and decorations along Main Street, in Astwood park, at the Tree, and in Memorial Park. Take a family photo at the Community Christmas Tree. Shop our local stores. Dine out while downtown. At 7:30 take in a Free Holiday Movie at the Ritz, “The Polar Express.” You don’t want to miss this iconic Downtown Newberry Holiday event!
