WILLIAMSON — If you couldn’t make it New York’s Rockefeller Center for the lighting of its Christmas Tree, you’ll have a chance to capture some of the magic here in the Tug Valley.
In an event called Home for the Holday, the Laurel Lake Wildlife Management Area Foundation, Inc., has invited the public to come to Laurel Lake Park to help decorate the community Christmas tree on Saturday afternoon.
Gail Hall, Chair of the Board of Directors, told the Daily News that the event was a “first for the area,” and that the Foundation was “pleased to get it going.”
Hall said that community was invited to bring their own ornaments to place on the tree. While she didn’t know the tree’s exact dimensions, she did say it was big enough to need a cherry-picker to handle.
There will also be hot chocolate available, as well as caroling. The event kicks off with the decoration at 4 p.m. with the tree set to be lit up around 5:30 p.m.
