Bundle up, put on your favorite walking shoes or boots, and join the festivities! On Saturday evening, December 5, 2015, Bedford will be holding its annual Tree Lighting celebration. Join friends and family as we enjoy this much anticipated tradition. This year we will be offering a flurry of activities to encourage everyone to stroll, shop, savor, and socialize to kick off the winter season on the right note.
In collaboration with Recreation Department, Economic Development, and Healthy Bedford along with the Bedford Chamber of Commerce, we invite you to park the car, walk our Town Center, and shop local by joining us for this celebration of winter in Bedford:
- 4:00PM – Free Winter Holiday Laser Show at the Bedford High School Auditorium
- 4:30PM to 8:00PM – Bedford Walkabout with participating businesses in Town Common area and at Old Town Hall. The Chamber will host a shop local event at Old Town Hall in the Great Room on the third floor. Visit folks from Great Road Gallery, Red Heat, Organizing Works, and more and enjoy prizes and giveaways. Participating stores just a short walk from the Common include the Higgins Group, the Orange Chair, Wearovers, Corner Antiques, and Suzanne and Company. Each business will offer refreshment or other incentive for your visit.
