AUBURN, Mass. – The Town of Auburn announced Wednesday it will be having its first-ever holiday tree lighting ceremony Nov. 30 at Drury Square.
The fun-filled ceremony will be at 5:30 p.m. next to Fire Station Headquarters at Drury Square. The event will feature caroling, a visit from Santa and free refreshments.
“This is the first time we’re having a tree lighting, and we’re very excited,” said Kristen Pappas, Auburn’s director of recreation and culture. “That’s what you get when you have a great town manager like Julie Jacobson. We’re very lucky to have her.”
The ceremony will include a sing-a-long and caroling led by Zachary Cooper, an Auburn elementary music teacher. Pappas said the Bryn Mawr and Mary D. Stone elementary school choirs will be singing Christmas carols.
In addition, there will be a special guest appearance from Santa, which “will be really fun for kids,” Pappas said.
There also will be free treats at the tree lighting, including hot cocoa, coffee and 300 cookies baked by culinary arts students from Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School.
The Town of Auburn wishes residents and visitors a happy, healthy holiday season.
