Join us for the Annual Tree Lighting!
On Wednesday, November 24th at 6 p.m. traffic will be routed away from the tree at Monument Square on Main St. (between the First Congregational and First Baptist Churches) where residents are asked to gather to count down the seconds until the switch is thrown and thousands of twinkling lights adorn the downtown.
The tree by the monument has been generously donated by Mark and Ruth Miller of Notch Road, North Adams, in loving memory of their son, Scott, their parents and Mark’s brother, Paul. The blue spruce was originally a sapling from a summer property the family owned in South Port Island, Maine, which Mr. Miller transplanted in North Adams 30 years ago. The tree by City Hall thoughtfully was donated by Hope and Shaun Bussiere of Adams in recognition of the 20th anniversary and in memory of Hope’s brother, Donny Dix.
As soon as Main Street lights up the Drury High School Band and Band Front will lead the way with festive songs for the North Adams Fire Department’s fire engine as it makes its way through downtown with Santa Claus. Santa and his helpers will bring gifts for the first 500 children.
The North Adams Office of Community Events is grateful to our sponsors Greylock Federal Credit Union, MountainOne Bank, Berkshire Bank, Cascade School Supplies, the First Baptist Church, the Drury High School Band, and MASS MoCA for their help in making this event possible.
