For the 8th year, BVU will herald in the Christmas season by sponsoring the Community Tree-Lighting at Cumberland Square Park in Historic Downtown Bristol, Virginia. Set for Monday, December 2, at 6:15p.m., the event showcases a stately 45-foot Norwegian Spruce, which BVU technicians decorate with thousands of lights — about 18,000 of them — for a dramatic and joyous ceremonial display. Cider and hot chocolate will be available, and Christmas music will be provided by the John S. Battle Marching Band, VHS & TCCS Choirs, and others. Rain date: Tuesday, December 3, 6:15pm.
