Photo Gallery: 2017 Salisbury Holiday Tree Lighting


Friday night on North Division Street, the 2017 Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony was held. Hundreds attended and participated in music and sing-a-longs led by Tessa McKay, plus performances by the Pinehurst Elementary Choir, the Level Up All Stars, and the Feet of Fire Dance Company.   Santa arrived in time to light the tree at 6:30 p.m. — a magnificent 18 foot beauty courtesy of P&J Tree Farm in Delmar.

Afterward, many people followed Santa over to First Shore Federal Savings and Loan Association’s Winter Wonderland Lobby for free cookies, candy and photo ops with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

In anticipation of the Hanukkah season, the menorah will be displayed with the tree, fully lit, until Hanukkah begins on Dec. 12, when the daily lightings begin.
