TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce will host its fourth annual Community Caroling & Tree Lighting Ceremony on Sunday, November 27, from 4:30 p.m, until 6:00 p.m., on The Mall in Trussville. Presenting sponsor for the event is First Baptist Church Trussville.
“In its short history, the Community Caroling & Tree Lighting Ceremony has become a fun and well-loved Trussville tradition,” the chamber’s executive director, June Mathews, said. “It’s been exciting to watch it grow every year, and we’re looking for that trend to continue with this 2022 event.”
The seasonal combination of musical entertainment, caroling, kids’ activities, and pictures with Santa will culminate with Mayor Buddy Choat’s order to light the city’s Christmas tree at 5:45 p.m. As the tree is lit, a chorus of jingle bells will ring, led by none other than the Jolly Old Elf himself.
The Community Caroling & Tree Lighting is a community effort coordinated by the Trussville Chamber. Major contributors include the City of Trussville, First Baptist Church Trussville, The Trussville Tribune, and Trussville Gas & Water. Other sponsors include 4 Africa, America’s First Federal Credit Union, Bryant Bank, SouthPoint Bank, and Southland Golf Carts.
Booth space is made available to chamber members only, free of charge. But in lieu of a participation fee, each vendor is expected to provide giveaways and/or a free kids’ activity. For details, call the chamber office.
The Trussville Historical Society’s Christmas Memory Bench at the foot of the Christmas tree will again serve as a photo-op spot for family and friends throughout the holiday season.
