Vienna tree lighting ceremony won't be held this year

By  | 

The tree will be lit, but not at a ceremony.

Vienna calls off its annual Christmas tree lighting event.

This year's was scheduled for Tuesday night, December 1, but called off because of the weather.

Mayor Randy Rapp says it could not be rescheduled due to conflicts involving the choir and others scheduled to appear.

This does not mean, however, the tree at Jackson Park won't be lit.

The mayor says city employees will turn on the lights Tuesday night for the first time, once it gets dark.
