ECSD Annual Tree Lighting

Join us again for the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at Hammond Park. Light refreshments will be served as we enjoy a community sing-along preparing for the tree to be lit. Each year the Community Service Department sends a special request all the way to the North Pole to invite Santa Claus to our event....

Santa Bring your camera, your very best singing voice and something warm to wear. The events will only be postponed in the event of rain or a severe snowstorm (a little snow won't hurt us).
