In the spirit of the holiday season, Mayor Hatem will light the Downtown Christmas Tree.  The difference is, this year, the tree will be lit at Whittler’s Bench and there will be no spectators.

As always, ‘Twas the Night before Christmas” will be read, and the Trinity United Methodist Church children’s choir will serenade us with time-honored Christmas carols.  Delight in a Southport Colonial Christmas at Fort Johnston.

The Southport Tree Lighting Ceremony can be viewed online HERE November 27, 6 p.m. So, cozy up, have some popcorn, make a cup of hot chocolate and join us to share in the joy of the season.
