Tree Lighting at City Hall Plaza

Saturday, November 27th at 5:00 pm
Join us at City Hall Plaza for a special tree lighting ceremony. Enjoy carolers, hot cocoa, and cookies as we flip the switch on Ellsworth’s best tree yet. Kids can bring any letters destined for the North Pole to drop off at Santa’s mailbox in front of City Hall.  Saturday the 27th is also “Small Business Saturday”—an opportunity to shop local for your gifts!  Learn more about the event and how to watch the live feed during the holidays:
