Rutherford County Christmas Tree Lighting

Downtown Murfreesboro

Ring in the happiest time of the year with the lighting of the official Rutherford
County Christmas Tree on Friday, December 2. Murfreesboro’s Historic
Downtown Square will be filled with sounds of the season and the anticipation of
the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. Bree Smith, Storm 5 Meteorologist, News
Channel 5, will emcee the festivities.

Brittney Spencer, with MTSU’s Generation of Purpose Gospel Choir, along
with Cason Lane Academy Choir, Central Magnet School Choir, and Campus
School Choir will perform some of our favorite Christmas songs. Jimmie Lou
Tate’s Dancer’s School will feature some of their ballet and tap dancers. The
Murfreesboro Center for the Arts will present a preview of the musical The
Christmas Schooner.

After arriving, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will flip the switch, lighting the official
Rutherford County Christmas Tree. They will then proceed to the Courthouse to
be available for photographs and listen to the Christmas wishes of the children.

Sponsors for this event are Main Street Murfreesboro, Murfreesboro Electric
Department, Bell & Associates Construction, Dempsey Vantrease & Follis, First
Tennessee Bank, True North Geographic Technologies, Rutherford County, and
Murfreesboro City Schools. Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus are kindly being sponsored by downtown lawyers.
