Christmas tree on Main

Watch the giant tree go up on Main Street starting about 10 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 19. The "decorators" will move in Monday morning (the 20th) to trim the conifer from top to bottom. The holiday season will kick off with the Yuletide Sampler from 5 to 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 24 in Downtown Park Rapids. Thank you to Val and Terry Kimball of Hubbard for donating this year's tree.

 

Participating businesses host this annual event as a way to thank the community for their support all year and invite the start of your holiday shopping. Then join the community gathering at 6 p.m. for the CHI St. Joseph’s Hospice Care Light Up a Life Community Tree Lighting on Main. The tree lighting ceremony is a celebration of life and memories. This year’s event will honor the memory of Guy LaFontaine, former owner of the Outdoorsman Cafe in Walker. By giving a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one, you are helping to bring individualized care to Hospice patients in our area. All donations are used locally. In the spirit of the season, a Christmas carol sing-along, roasting marshmallows over fire pits, the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus and the countdown to light the beautifully decorated Main Street tree complete the celebration. Many people describe the annual event as a Norman Rockwell moment.
