Two types of lights will be turned on inside the Seymour square as part of community celebrations scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 5.
The city of Seymour will turn on both.
First up is the lighting of a new, live Christmas tree that was planted last week on the west side of the city square.
Also scheduled that evening is turning on the lights of 12 new, three-globe lights that are to be installed along the four sidewalks of the Seymour Downtown Park that lead to the park’s gazebo.
The globe lights are on a timer, City Administrator Hillary Gintz noted, so they will come on as the sun falls, likely around 5:30 p.m.
The lighting of the city’s Christmas tree comes at conclusion of the annual Seymour Christmas Parade.
The parade steps off at 5:30 p.m. It will end around 6 p.m. Gintz said the lighting of the Christmas tree, a Norway Spruce variety that was purchased from Willow Greens Gardens in Rogersville, is set to begin around 6:30 p.m.
