Welcome to The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce
2014 Tree Lighting Ceremony
New Milford Festival of Lights / Tree Lighting Ceremony
November 29th 2014
The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the annual Festival of Lights / Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, November 29th at 5:30 p.m. on the Village Green. Highlights of the evening will include the lighting of the Christmas trees on the Green, a parade of lights courtesy of our volunteer fire departments, and visits with Santa. The trees are put up by the United Methodist Men of the New Milford United Methodist Church, www.newmilfordumc.org. This is the 48th year the trees have been put up.
We hope you will join us for this community tradition.
Also on November 29th - Small Business Saturday – Shop Local
In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before. This year, the big day is Nov 29. We encourage you to Shop Local and support all of the businesses in the Greater New Milford area.
Come visit our downtown merchants prior to the ceremony on the Green and enjoy the wonder of downtown New Milford.
