Caroling on the Square and Christmas Tree Lighting

The family-friendly holiday tradition returns to Rodney Square!

Join Mayor Mike Purzycki and Acting Cultural Affairs Director Tina Betz for Wilmington's Caroling on the Square and the official lighting of the City’s Christmas Tree.

Mayor Purzycki and members of City Council will light the City’s Christmas Tree, a 30-foot white fir supplied by New York-based Maple Hill Trees and decorated by the City’s Parks and Recreation Maintenance Division. Holiday songs will be led by the Wilmington Children’s Chorus and the Combined Choirs of Saints Andrew and Matthew. Well-known holiday characters will be on hand to greet participants and, in exchange for donated non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army, Kenny’s Shop Rite will provide snacks and hot chocolate. Delmarva Power (An Excelon Company) and the Kenny Family Foundation are proud sponsors of this event.

Family friendly fun on Tuesday, December 12 at Caroling on the Square.
