Saturday, November 30th is Small Business Saturday. It's also the day of the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting in SK Whiting Park in Ellsworth.

Bundle up and bring the family! The Tree Lighting takes place at 5PM and cast members from The Grand’s production of A Musical Christmas Carol will be leading Christmas carols. Luminaries will be provided by the Fitch family and friends, and there will be free hot chocolate and candy canes.

New this year children will be invited to write a letter to Santa and there will be a mailbox for the letters. Children who with their parent's permission provide their mailing address will receive a free personalized letter from Santa in the mail!

There are over 3,000 lights on the Ellsworth Christmas Tree this year.
