Surprises in Store for 3rd Annual Naples City Christmas Tree Lighting
By Kristin Forbis, Dec 3, 2019
Christmas has many great traditions that bring families and friends together and the 3rd Annual Naples City Christmas Tree Lighting happening tonight is a growing favorite. Mayor Dean Baker hosts the tree lighting at the Naples City Plaza Park each year with tons of fun and this year crowds can expect a few surprises added to the mix. While of course there will be the traditional serenading by the elementary choirs as well as Santa arriving in style, Naples City will also be unveiling a new guest whose home will be in the Naples City road side park. There will also be a new visitor who, based on his reputation, will likely disrupt the party and wreak some havoc before learning the true meaning of Christmas. Naples City is thrilled at how quickly this event has become a family favorite. “Every year has exceeded our expectations,” shares Naples City Manager Joshua Bake. “The first year our goal was to have at least 50 people and we had over 1000 attend! Every year it has at least doubled in size...It has been a blast having everyone participate.” Also new this year will be some on site parking in the lot across from the fire station. The bus system will continue for those that park at Naples City Park. All are invited to the Annual Naples City Tree Lighting tonight, Tuesday, December 3rd at 7pm at the Naples City Plaza Park.
