The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce is hosting their annual Festival of Lights Tree Lighting Ceremony Saturday night. A parade of lights is taking place featuring the volunteer fire departments. This is the 49th year the trees have been put up.
The lighting takes place at 5:30pm on the Village Green.
Members of the New Milford United Methodist Men’s Club and other church members donate their time and effort to cut the trees down, place them on the Green, string the wires and the lights, and take them down shortly after New Years. The Club also sells Christmas Trees at the church during December to raise funds to help support local scholarships, mission projects and local community agencies.
