Historic Christmas Tree Lighting Collage

Welcome in the holiday season with the official Christmas tree lighting for the Town of Cary. This festive night features actors, singers, and musicians from the community. We'll also unveil the Cary Community Christmas Tree inside Town Hall. Over 125 community groups provide handcrafted ornaments to be displayed on the inside tree -- a true representation of the diversity of Cary.
