Annual Tree Lighting
November 27, 2020
GARMA will continue the tradition of the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 27 (Black Friday) with some alterations to our regular plans. This year’s tree lighting will be done virtually. We will live stream the event on our Facebook page, thus encouraging people to stay home and celebrate in warmth with family and friends. This live stream will start at 5:45 pm on the 27th and last approximately 25 minutes.
During this time we ask families to post pictures on our Facebook page depicting their anticipation of the lighting of the Gettysburg Christmas Tree (#gettysburgvirtualtreelighting). Those who post will win GARMA Gift Certificates that can be spent at over 65 GARMA businesses.
