LAKE CITY — If drivers noticed the Christmas lights glowing at Lake City Municipal Hall Monday and wondered why the city was getting such a head start on the holiday, they don’t have to worry.
Nobody slept through Thanksgiving. The city was just testing the lights to make sure they will work in a week and a half. Lake City will hold its annual Christmas tree lighting celebration Nov. 23 at 6 p.m., at the municipal hall, 5455 Jonesboro Road, said Public Works Director Eddie Robinson.
As it has in past years, the event will feature singing, hot chocolate, Santa Claus and, of course, the official lighting of the holiday decorations. The centerpiece of the display is a 55-foot tall Christmas tree.
