Tree lighting on the Fairfield Town Green Dec. 2

The community is invited to celebrate the lighting of the tallest living tree in Connecticut on Friday, Dec. 2, beginning at 5:55 p.m., at the Fairfield Town Hall Green.

Friends and family may gather for the lighting of the 90-foot tall Norway spruce Christmas tree, the tallest living tree that gets lit at Christmas time in Connecticut, and one of three trees donated by the Daughters of the American Revolution in December 1918.

The festivities begin at 5:55 with the Fairfield Woods, Roger Ludlowe and Tomlinson Middle School Chamber Choirs singing songs of the season. The Fairfield Warde Choral Group will perform at 6:20 and The Downtown Theatre Company will cap off performances at 6:45. Hot chocolate and free glow necklaces will be provided, compliments of the Town Youth Council. First Selectman, Mike Tetreau will do the countdown to light the tree at 7 p.m. and Santa Claus arrives by Fire Engine soon after.

Parks & Rec., Local 1426 Fairfield Fire Fighters and the Fairfield Fire Rescue sponsor this event. The Fairfield Public Works Department and the Fairfield Police Department also help make this event possible.
