LYNDONVILLE – The village’s Christmas celebration continues to grow. Saturday will be the fifth Christmas tree lighting at Veterans Park. The number of decorated trees is up to 68, the most since the celebration started in 2013.

Community organizations and residents pay $30 to decorate a tree. This year there are 18 new organizations participating this year.

The Hughes and Whipple families decorated this tree, “To honor Lyndonville, a wonderful community to raise a family.”

The celebration starts at 8 a.m. with a community breakfast at the Lyndonville Presbyterian Church. There are many activities throughout the day, including horse-drawn carriage rides, a basket raffle, wine tasting, caroling, and other events, including Santa’s arrival at 5 p.m. Santa will flip the switch to turn on the lights for all 68 trees.

The angel at the top of this tree honors the memory of Megan Dix, who was shot and killed on Aug. 25. This tree was decorated for Dix by her family, the Duncansons.

The Lyndonville Bus Garage is among the many community organizations to decorate a tree.
