On Sunday, December 7, 2014, Zephyrhills, Florida will hold its annual tree lighting event for the 30th year! It will take place on the grounds of the Florida Hospital Zephyrhills on US 301, just north of the center of the town. The event will last from 1:00 PM to 6:30 PM.
There will be 53 decorated trees on display. Light refreshments will be served and guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and their friends and families. I am sure one and all will enjoy this wonderful community event.
The schedule of events for the day is as follows:
- 1:00 PM - Tree decorating, childrens activities and crafts, entertainment at the "Circle of Trees", and food available for purchase.
- 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM - Santa's arrival and a live nativity scene.
- 5:00 PM - Skydivers drop into the scene!
- 5:30 PM - Evening entertainment including: The Christmas Story, 3 different entertainment programs. All followed by the "Lighting of the Trees" and a fireworks display.
This is always a fun event for young and old. Our weather is mild and pleasant. Why not come out and take advantage of this "kick-off" to the holiday season in Zephyrhills? Hope to see you there!
