2016 Annual Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Good Morning!

 All are invited to the City of Blue Springs’ 2016 Annual Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony this evening, Tuesday, December 6.  This is a free, family holiday event that will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will take place outside City Hall at 903 W. Main Street in downtown Blue Springs.

 “This special event draws hundreds of children and families to downtown Blue Springs for a unique holiday experience,” said Mayor Carson Ross.  “It’s a wonderful tradition in our community and a great way to celebrate the closeness and the spirit of giving that exists within our city.”

Pete Grigsby with KMBC Channel 9 and teacher for the Blue Springs School District, will join Mayor Ross as Master of Ceremonies.  The live countdown to the tree lighting will take place between 6:15 and 6:20 p.m.  Mayor Ross will be joined by Kim Nakahodo’s family as they flip the switch and light the official Blue Springs Christmas Tree.  Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive in an Enchanted Sleigh immediately following.

 It’s a great event – come join the fun !!
