100th Christmas Tree Celebration
Celebrating Corcoran's 100th Tree
In honor of the 100th Christmas Tree, the Corcoran Chamber of Commerce is planning a three-day event surrounding the tree. Corcoran residents should prepare for a "Winter Wonderland" December 6, 7 and 8. The festivities include an ice skating rink, snow sledding hill and 2 live reindeer with a sleigh brought in for the special occasion. Children will enjoy decorating cookies, making holiday crafts, writing letters to Santa and visits with Mrs. Claus, and Mickey and Minnie Mouse. One stop that you won't want to miss is the custom made gingerbread house, made for this special occasion. There will be plenty of opportunities for families to take photos for their Christmas cards as there will be several photo op stations, including a vintage red truck in a wintry scene. While the children stay a bustle with all of the activities, parents can enjoy a Christmas Bazaar featuring specialty items such as handmade soaps, jams, holiday decorations, jewelry, homemade breads and so much more. A children's only store will also be open, which will give children the chance to purchase gifts worth $5-10 for fifty cents to $1 for their loved ones, teachers, siblings and family members. Vintage carriage rides downtown will give festivity-goers a chance to enjoy the new lighting and holiday decorations made possible through grants from the Corcoran Community Foundation and City of Corcoran. Saturday morning will kick off with Breakfast with Santa hosted by the Corcoran Kiwanis Club. Throughout the event, there will be live musical performances, Christmas Carolers and a live nativity scene complete with camel, lambs, goats, calves and chickens. Event hours are Friday, December 6 from 5-9 p.m., Saturday, December 7 from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. (pancake breakfast will be held prior to opening at 11 a.m.) and Sunday, December 8 from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. This event is being made possible by several sponsorships from the Corcoran community, businesses and families. If you would like to make a sponsorship donation or have questions regarding the event, please contact Lisa Shaw at the Corcoran Chamber of Commerce 559-992-4514.
