FALL RIVER, Mass. (WLNE) –  Mayor Paul Coogan invites people to Fall River’s Tree Lighting Ceremony at Government Center after the Children’s Holiday Parade Saturday, December 4th.

The tree lighting, sponsored by Bank5, will take place at 4:30 p.m. Some extra activities are scheduled beforehand, like New Bedford Art Museum’s ArtMobile giving out craft-and-go kits. Food trucks will also be present, with a lay-out including Friskie Fries, Gnarly Vines Farm, and What’s Up Cupcake. Once the sun has set, Mayor Coogan will be joined by guests to light the tree for the first time this season.

“Last year, we weren’t able to bring the community together for so many of our favorite
traditions- including the tree lighting,” said Mayor Paul Coogan. “I hope that, after watching the
parade, families will stop by City Hall to get a bite to eat, enjoy some activities and kick off to
the holiday season with our tree lighting.”
