Rice Park Tree Lighting

With the snowflakes falling last night I can finally say, the holidays are around the corner.  Prior to that, I was really hoping winter wasn’t quite here and the holidays were months away.  Yes indeed, sooner than later.  It also means, mark the calendars for upcoming holiday and winter events.

Next Saturday, November 18th, is the Rice Park Tree Lighting event.  The lights will stay lit until mid March, which means plenty of opportunity to see and enjoy the beautiful scene.

Date: Saturday, November 18 2017
