Ceremony set for lighting of downtown Reading Christmas tree

READING, Pa. - Downtown Reading will be ushering in the Christmas season in a whole new way this year.

A ceremony to light the city's official Christmas tree at 5th and Penn streets will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 22, the eve of the annual holiday parade down Penn Street.

For the past several years, the tree was lighted during a brief ceremony at the start of the parade.

The ceremony will include choir music, hot chocolate and s'mores, according to the Downtown Improvement District.

The tree will be decorated with ornaments made by local elementary school children.

The parade is scheduled to step off from 11th and Penn streets at 9 a.m. on Sat., Nov. 23, and make its way to 2nd and Penn.
