As you likely are aware, due to the rain last week, the city regrettably had to cancel our annual tree lighting ceremony and holiday parade. However, in an effort to organize a scaled down version of our annual holiday celebration, we are happy to share that the city will be hosting a special community tree lighting ceremony and holiday event at Library Park tomorrow Wednesday, Dec. 12, from 4 to 6 p.m.

Beginning at 4 p.m., the event will kick-off with performances by the Monrovia High School Band, Centre Stage, and the Champagne Signers. While you’re listening to the festive music, stroll down Lime Avenue to view this year’s parade float entries. At 5:30 p.m., the formal tree lighting program will begin where we will be recognizing and celebrating our Parade Grand Marshall – the Monrovia Area Partnership (MAP) leaders.

Other activities tomorrow will include carriage rides in Old Town, a photo booth, face painting, Starbucks coffee, tea and cocoa, a cookie decorating station as well as one for writing letters to Santa.
