FRISCO TREE LIGHTING MOVES TO TOMORROW, THURSDAY, DEC. 1;
‘MINI’ MERRY MAIN STREET CONTINUES DEC. 3 WITH KIDS HOLIDAY STORE,
SANTA & MRS. CLAUS
(November 30, 2016) The City of Frisco is rescheduling its tree lighting ceremony for tomorrow, Thursday, December 1 at 6 p.m.
Mayor Pro Tem Will Sowell will lead the countdown to the tree lighting.
“We made the decision to avoid the heavy rain forecast for this Saturday,” said Rick Wieland
, Director of Parks and Recreation. “Residents and visitors are already enjoying the choreographed light show in Frisco Square. This way, our residents can enjoy our traditional tree lighting without the rain.”
Also, due to the rainy forecast, the City of Frisco will host a ‘Mini’ Merry Main Street
from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.
this Saturday, December 3, which is the event’s original date. Activities that can be held indoors will be hosted inside City Hall (6101 Frisco Square Blvd.). All activities scheduled outdoors are cancelled.
The Kids Holiday Store will be open from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.,
first come, first served. Nothing else has changed. The store is open to young shoppers, ages 3 – 12. Children can surprise their mom and dad with a wrapped gift from the store where nothing is priced at more than $5. Cash only.
Rain can’t keep Mr. and Mrs. Claus away! Children can visit Santa inside City Hall and take home a free photo. Mrs. Claus will be serving free cookies.
“Merry Main Street
has been a holiday staple in Frisco for 26 years,” said Wieland. “We’re looking forward to continuing that tradition, despite scaling it down a bit due to the very wet forecast.”
The City of Frisco partners with Frisco Square to host Christmas in the Square
, which features more than 175,000 lights and is one of the largest choreographed light and music shows in North Texas.
