Bristol’s Annual Community Christmas Tree Lighting is set for Monday, November 30 at 6:30 p.m. at Cumberland Square Park in Historic Downtown Bristol. The event showcases the site’s nearly 50-foot Norwegian Spruce and its younger counterpart, a 25-foot Douglas Fir. BVU technicians decorate the pair with thousands of warm-white Christmas lights – about 30,000 of them – for a dramatic and joyous display.

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. with music from Reagan Boggs, refreshments, a visit from the John S. Battle High School Marching Band, and members of the WCYB team. The twin-city mayors will turn on the lights to the trees at approximately 7:00 pm.

2015 is BVU’s 10th consecutive year as the event sponsor. In addition to BVU, Lowe’s of Bristol helped provide lights for the tree.
