The annual lighting of the tree that stands in the median at Wildwood and Columbus in Rio Dell will be at dusk. Heading up the festivities will be a fire truck parade starting at 5 p.m. bringing Santa to town.
Refreshments, music and more will be on offer. The Community Resource Center will be handing out goody bags, and Wildwood will be lit up, as it is each year, with decorations purchased by the chamber with donations from the City of Rio Dell, businesses, agricultural producers, and individuals supporting the goal of expanding civic pride, and creating a destination for those wanting to enjoy holiday lighting displays.
So start the season right, among friends and neighbors – come enjoy the atmosphere and festivities downtown, where all the lights are bright. The fire department will ride again on Christmas Eve, as is traditional, when members will hand out candy canes throughout the community.
We are so excited that events are happening again. Event details are being updated as information becomes available. Before making plans, please check the event or festival website or Facebook page.
