Friday, December 6 at 6 P.M. the Historic Downtown Square will ring in the official Christmas spirit with the Main Street lighting of the Rutherford County Christmas tree. Bring a chair, blanket and cozy up with your loved ones for one hour of entertainment. Come early and stay late for the children to enjoy free hot chocolate and children's crafts thanks to our sponsors.
Sure to bring goose bumps will be the debut of Murfreesboro's first Community Christmas Choir made up voices from churches all over the city. The stage will be filled with a multi-generational, multi-ethnic, mix of voices filling the downtown with Christmas classics for all to join in.
Thanks to our presenting sponsor Murfreesboro Electric along with Pinnacle Financial Partners, CSL Plasma, Redstone Federal Credit Union, the Rutherford Convention and Visitors Bureau, National Dance Club, First Vision Bank, Dempsey, Vantrease & Follis, WalMart, and downtown lawyers, Main Street offers this free event to promote our downtown and carry on the tradition of ringing in the official Christmas season when both our mayors along with Santa, his elf, and special guests from the Boys and Girls' Club turn on the lights of the courthouse tree.
