(Roanoke County, VA - November 29, 2021) - Roanoke County officials invite the community to join together to begin the holiday season with a ceremonial Christmas Tree Lighting on Monday, December 6 at the South County Library.
This year’s theme “Merry and Bright” will feature entertainment, crafts, activities, and special attractions that will help to make the evening merry and bright! The event kicks off with a ceremonial tree lighting at 6:30 PM and Christmas carols led by song-leader Rebecca Ventola of the Library staff.
Holiday crafts and activities for children and teens will be available including candy cane art, 3D-printed ornaments, and paper bag luminaries. While you’re here, enjoy marshmallow roasting, a cake walk, and light holiday refreshments.
