FRAMINGHAM – The 30th Annual Framingham holiday tree lighting was held this evening, December 3 in downtown Framingham.

Due to the coronavirus, the event was held outside block-party style.

There was no Girl Scout sing-a-long on the steps this year for the first-time in decades, but Santa and Mrs. Claus still arrived on a fire truck.

Santa with his magic, and some help from the crowd, lit the City’s Christmas tree.

Mayor Yvonne Spicer and mayor-elect Charlie Sisitsky were in attendance.

City Councilor Janet Leombruno, School Committee Chair Adam Freudberg, and District 5 School Committee member Priscila Sousa were also seen in the crowd.

Children could get a free book, and tour the winter wonderland-themed bookmobile from the Framingham Public Library.

There were cookies and hot cocoa were available

Holiday music played, but no pictures with Santa this year, due to COVID-19.
