The afternoon kicks off with the tree raising in the center of town by volunteers of the Georgetown Fire Department. The Parade of Lights is sponsored by the Georgetown Divide Rotary and has become the community’s favorite event, ending with a visit by Santa Claus.

All are welcome! Floats, walkers & friendly animals are encouraged to light up and join in the festivities. Choirs, youth groups & other entertainers are also needed. It’s a fun event for the entire family. Soups, stews, hot chocolate & cider will be available to those in attendance. It will be on the cool side this evening, so please dress warmly. Hope to see you there!
