Linglestown Village Tree Lighting & Carol Sing

Join Linglestown Area Civic Association as we sing Christmas carols and light the Linglestown Village Christmas tree. We will meet around the town clock near the intersection of Linglestown Road and N. Mountain Road. Free public parking will be available on a first-come, first-served along Linglestown Road and in the municipal lots near Koons Park and Linglestown Life church.

This annual family-oriented carol-singing activity will be lead by a brass ensemble from the local musical group “Jay and the Jingos.” At the end of the holiday carol singing, the village Christmas tree will be lit on the Square. This year, the Christmas tree will be decorated with hundreds of lights purchased by LACA and placed by Ritchie’s Tree Service; and with the use of the Linglestown Fire Co’s. tower truck, Santa and Mrs. Claus will place a large crystal star on top of the tree.

Following the singing and tree-lighting activities, the public is invited to the “St. Thomas” Social Hall of the Linglestown Fire Co., located at the west end of the village at 5901 Linglestown Rd., and join Santa and Mrs. Claus for hot chocolate and cookies supplied by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Fire Company and other local organizations.

Everyone is invited to attend this free annual holiday event.

Please bring a flashlight if you plan to read from our song sheets!
