The Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber, proud partner of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, is gearing up for a memorable 2021 holiday season!
The Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber, proud partner of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, is gearing up for a memorable 2021 holiday season with their annual tree lighting ceremony in Slatington, PA.
The event will take place on Friday, December 3, 2021 from 5:00-8:00 PM and is free and open to the public. At 5:00 PM, attendees are encouraged to stop by the Slatington Library for stories with Mrs. Claus, before heading down to the festivities at Veterans Memorial Park (509 Main Street, Slatington), which kick off at 6:00 PM.
The event will feature festive holiday performances from Rhythm and Sole Dance Studio, as well as complimentary hot chocolate and hotdogs for participants. Crafters, artisans and local businesses will host a vendor market to provide an opportunity for holiday shopping, and Santa Claus himself will be making an appearance, too.
The tradition returns after a hiatus in 2020, where it was pushed to become a virtual tree lighting and drive-thru event.
“This is a time-honored tradition in Northern Lehigh” said Jessica O’Donnell, Executive Vice President of Affiliated Chambers for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. “After being forced to be distanced in 2020, we’re so happy to be back in person with our community to celebrate the holidays.”
In addition to the Tree Lighting festivities, the event will also host a food drive that will benefit the Northern Lehigh Food Bank. “The holidays remind us that the spirit of giving is alive and well, and the Chamber likes to ensure that we are helping others in the community,” said Kylie Adams-Weiss, Assistant Vice President of Affiliated Chambers for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. “We’re hoping that by giving back to those in need, we can keep the holiday spirit thriving in Northern Lehigh.”
Opportunities to take pictures with Santa will be available for those in attendance once the tree is lit.
