Annual Tree Lighting (Virtual)

We are delighted to announce that the highly anticipated annual Wilcox Park Tree Lighting will take place exclusively on Facebook Live. Starting at 4:30PM on Saturday, November 28, 2020, the association will broadcast a luminous and fun-filled brief evening event that will culminate in the official lighting of beautiful 20' holiday fir tree. The event will also feature revered local youth soprano Orla Peck as well as some silly library vignettes, including everyone’s favorite Westerly reindeer, “Doe”.   


All local community members are formally invited to stop by the library to pick up the free event packets which includes hot cocoa, candy cane lollipops, and the song lyrics to the seasonal songs featured in the sing-along section of the Facebook Live event, while supplies last!  


The library and park staff also look forward to sparking your imagination with this hilarious YouTube “tree lighting” movie invitation which juxtaposes the campy, silent film genre with the fun of the 1980’s neon lights glam. Please enjoy and share the below link.

Beginning on Saturday, November 7th we will have event packets available at our services desks on a first come first serve basis. They will include hot chocolate to enjoy at home, a candy cane, carol lyrics and more.

Due to COVID-19 this event will not be held as an in-person event. However, we will air all the festivities on Facebook Live and hope you join us virtually.
