Downtown Stroudsburg Tree Lighting Celebration on Friday, November 29, 2013 Stroudsburg – The Jacob Stroud Corporation presents the Annual Tree Lighting Celebration in Courthouse Square.
The holiday season arrives in Downtown Stroudsburg and begins at our Annual Tree Lighting Celebration in Courthouse Square on Friday, November 29, 2013 at 5:30 PM. Organizers of the event—the Jacob Stroud Corporation, a non-profit dedicated to a vibrant Downtown Stroudsburg have arranged for the delivery of this year’s Christmas Tree that has been graciously donated by the Snyder and Olofsson families , which could not be done without the maintenance provided by Dunkelberger Tree Service and the Borough of Stroudsburg Maintenance Group. Start your holiday shopping early, enjoy live performances, a chance to win free tickets to Radio City Music Hall donated by WSBG and hop on a horse and carriage. We are making spirits bright in Downtown Stroudsburg.
On hand that evening will be the staff of Grandpa Pete’s Bagels, Kitchen Chemistry and Quench who will be serving up delicious hot cocoa, hot apple cider and other warm treats. To top off the evening, Santa and his elves will be arriving in Courthouse Square to listen to children’s holiday wishes and pose for photos.
Following the tree lighting, take a ride on a horse and carriage with Sugar Mountain Horse & Carriages through Downtown Stroudsburg and look at the Christmas decorations. Many downtown shops will be open and happy to assist you in finding that perfect gift for your loved ones.
This year we are holding a food drive to support our local food pantries which are in GREAT need of stocking. Please take the time to donate non-perishable, (no glass) foods items and sign up for a chance to win two tickets to Radio City Music Hall for December 15th.
