From Staff Reports
Join us Thursday Nov. 17 for an evening of family fun in downtown Corsicana for the Christmas Tree Lighting and 175th Celebration Kick Off. The annual lighting of the three-story tree, with over 350 ornaments, brings a magnificent glow to our historic downtown as the holiday season begins.
The night will be filled with excitement as families experience the mini carnival rides and carriage rides under the twinkle lights. There will be food trucks, iceless skating, a balloon artist and face painter, trackless trains and craft vendors available for enjoyment as well.
The Corsicana ISD choir program will bring sounds of cheer at 6:30 p.m, and the Groove Tones band will provide live music throughout the evening. Photos with Santa will take place in the Pocket Park from 5 to 7 p.m. with Daniela Spurger, and Santa will travel down to the tree for pictures from 7 to 8 p.m.
Mayor Don Denbow will address the community to officially kick off the year-long 175th Celebration of the city of Corsicana. The Tourism and Parks offices have collaborated to create a memorable year of events to honor the city’s rich heritage. The evening ends with spectacular fireworks at 8 p.m.
