The lighting of the downtown Murfreesboro Christmas Tree will take place on Friday, December 3rd this year.
That was Middle Tennessee Electric’s Amy Byers who told WGNS that last year’s tree lighting event was virtual, due to COVID-19. But this year the event will be in-person and open to the community.
Again, the tree lighting event will take place at 6PM on Friday, December 3rd in front of the Rutherford County Courthouse.
