Bring the family to enjoy a traditional Holiday evening out when Santa Claus arrives to light the Perkasie Borough town center Christmas tree. The 2017 Tree Lighting Ceremony is from 5pm-8pm on Saturday, December 2.
Now in its 108th year, the traditional ceremony began in 1909 and is officially the oldest community tree lighting ceremony in the United States.
5:15pm: Mayor Hollenbach recites “T’was the Night Before Christmas”.
5:30pm: Central Middle School A Capella group
5:45pm: South Middle School Choir

One lucky child will flip the switch to light the tree: every child who brings a non-perishable food item for Pennridge FISH is entered into a drawing to win the honor.
A heated entertainment tent, free carriage rides, strolling musicians, live window displays, shopping and food specials round out this charming family event.
Be sure to visit the Perkasie Electric Department at 120 N. 7th St to see Doug Kramer’s Nostalgic Holiday Train Display from 12pm -8pm on December 1st and 2nd, and remember that local churches open with seasonal displays and events, hot cocoa, cookies and more.
