Tree Lighting Ceremony
The Village of Hillside and the Hillside Youth Commission are hosting the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. This year Santa will also arrive on a special sleigh. The festivities begin December 9th at 3:00pm at the Village Hall. Santa will turn on the switch that make the Trees at the Commons and the Courtyard come alive with thousands of lights.
Following the tree lighting, Santa will be in the Village Hall Board Room until 5:00pm to meet the children. Bring your camera to capture this magical time. There will be gifts for children (while supplies last), sleigh rides, kiddie rides, face painting, and more.
There will be a winter bonfire as well, weather permitting.
Special treats are compliments of Hillside Baseball and Hillside Basketball.
