The City’s 60-foot Ponderosa pine and its more than 2,400 lights is a beautiful sight during the holiday season. Bring a thermos of hot cocoa and visit the tree, which will remain lit on the Center for the Arts Plaza through New Year’s Day 2016.

At this year’s tree lighting, the City joins the local Fill-A-Bag food drive effort to benefit SnowCap Community Charities.

  • Help the City and local businesses reach the goal of collecting 500,000 pounds of food by Dec. 31.
  • Donate food or a monetary contribution directly to SnowCap, or drop off donations at Riverview Community Bank, Gresham Ford, The Outlook or Stamp Connection.
  • Did you know? A pound of food can be purchased for 5 cents; or 20 pounds of food for $1.
