Mayor Purzycki Invites Citizens to Wilmington’s Caroling on the Square and the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony

Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki and Cultural Affairs Director Tina Betz announced yesterday that Wilmington’s Caroling on the Square, featuring the official lighting of the City’s Holiday Tree, will take place on Tuesday, December 4 at 6:30 p.m., in Rodney Square at 10th and North Market Streets. Everyone, especially children and their families, is invited to the annual, free City event.

 

The festivities will include:

 

 

“This is a special time of year for people of many different faiths, cultures, and communities,” said Mayor Purzycki. “And we are pleased to once again be able to welcome our neighbors from around the city and across the region to this historic public square for a very festive and fun event. It is my hope that this holiday tradition helps to bring us together in a spirit of unity and peace as we wind down 2018 and look ahead to 2019.”

In keeping with the holiday spirit, attendees are encouraged to bring the following donations for local charities:

 

  • non-perishable food items
  • new or gently used children’s coats
  • new toys for the Mayor’s Holiday Toy Drive
  • blankets and adult socks for the homeless

 

To support and encourage downtown holiday shopping, metered parking downtown is free until December 31, 2018. From noon until 6:00 p.m. each weekday, the City will not require payment at parking meters in the Downtown Business District (defined as the area bounded by 2nd Street to 12th Street, and by French Street to Washington Street) and in the entire Riverfront Business District. The standard two-hour parking limit will remain in effect, however. Metered spaces will continue to be free on weekends and holidays.
