The Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department invites area residents and visitors to enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and kick off the holiday season with the community’s 6th annual “A Hometown Christmas” and tree lighting ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 26 at 6:30 pm in White Horse Park.
Trees decorated by Ocean Pines businesses, clubs, families and individuals will be on display and illuminated at the event, which is free and open to the public. Local choral groups will perform and Santa Claus will make an appearance.
Trees, which range in size from 8-10 feet, may be purchased for the display for $50 and will feature the sponsors’ names. Sponsors are responsible for decorating their trees in the theme of their choice in time for the ceremony. Trees will be in place and ready for decorating by Nov. 20.
