The day after Thanksgiving is the traditional lighting of the Community Christmas Tree in Hamilton. And this year is no exception.

The Hamilton Downtown Association has been busy decorating the Christmas Tree area on the Main Street side of the U.S. post office and has a few evening activities planned from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, November 29.

There will be burn barrels on the street corners, with available ingredients for s’mores, for the whole family. Strolling around the downtown area will bethe Montana A Capella Society, a traditional caroling feature of the evening. Don Matlock will bring them over to the tree at 6 p.m. for the lighting ceremony. (see photo) The children of the Sunshine Generation will also provide some tunes.

Following the lighting of the tree, Santa Claus will be on his bench near the tree, as children of all ages tell him what they’d like for Christmas. The Hamilton Downtown Association sponsors the annual event and stores will be open late. They remind you to “think local first” when shopping and making donations. Small Business Saturday is November 30.

Every Friday leading up to Christmas there will be special evening activities in downtown Hamilton with First Friday December 6, St Lucia celebration December 13 and Solstice Festival of Lights December 20.
