Tree lighting, fireworks to kick off the holiday season Nov. 19 in Hoffman Estates
The Village of Hoffman Estates' annual Friendship Tree Lighting Ceremony, sponsored by the Celebrations Commission, will take place at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, in front of the main entrance of the village hall, 1900 Hassell Road.
Mayor William D. McLeod will be joined by Boy Scout Cub Scout Troop 297 to light the tree and kick off a large fireworks display.
This year's celebration will be held entirely outdoors, so please dress for the weather.
The Celebrations Commission will be collecting donations of canned or boxed nonperishable goods and personal toiletry items for area food pantries.
This free, family-friendly event fills up quickly, so plan to arrive early for a good view.
