Auburn’s annual tree lighting ceremony will be held on Friday, December 1, at 6:00 PM. The event is held in Drury Square,  next to the Auburn Fire Rescue Department Headquarters, 47 Auburn Street.

The evening features a sing-a-long and caroling with the Auburn High School Marching Band and Chorus, SWIS Honor Choir, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts.  The invocation will be delivered by Reverend Douglas Geeze of Faith Church. There will also be a special guest appearance by Santa Claus!

Hot cocoa, coffee, and cookies baked by Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School culinary arts students will be served inside Fire Headquarters. Stearns Electric, Inc. based in Oxford has again agreed to donate their time and labor to hang the lights on the tree.

The Town of Auburn wishes residents and visitors a happy, healthy holiday season.
