What time will the tree be lit? At an unknown time that is likely between 6:30 – 6:50. If someone tells you they know what time the tree is lighting, they don’t know what they are talking about.
When are the fireworks? The holiday fireworks show will begin simultaneously with the tree lighting.
How is all this stuff free? Thanks to our amazing sponsors, Furnitureland Rotary has raised enough money to put on the party and will have excess funds to donate significant money to local charities.
Can I really meet and take pictures with Sir Purr and TopCats? Yes, Sir Purr and TopCats will attend the party from 4-6. They will be stationed about 30 feet in front of the tree. The TopCats are one of the performers that will perform on stage at 530.
Can I really take a picture with Santa for free? Yes, Santa is available for pictures from 3-6.30. We will not have a photographer and there is no charge to take your own picture (with your own phone).
Do I need to bring any money with me? This is a completely free event, but we cant provide free food at the food trucks, craft vendors, and local businesses that are open. BUT you dont need any more to take pictures with Santa and Sir Purr; play on the bounce houses; or get hot cocoa and s’mores (we do have limited supplies so make sure you arrive early)
Where do I get free hot cocoa and s’mores? The food lion tent in the stock & Grain Parking lot will start serving both at 3pm. They have 1,000 servings of hot cocoa and 500 s’mores so arrive early.
