The 34th Annual Caroling Sing-A-Long and Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held on Thursday, December 1, 2022 at 6:30PM right outside of the West Springfield Municipal Office Building (Town Hall).
The introduction of City Officials will begin at 6:30PM, hosted by the West Springfield Park & Recreation Department. Continuing the tradition, holiday songs will be sung by students from Coburn Elementary School, Mittineague Elementary School, Tatham Elementary School, Memorial Elementary School and Fausey Elementary School. At the end of the ceremony, the trees will glow in lights following the traditional “throwing-of-the-switch” by Mayor Will Reichelt.
The Town of West Springfield sponsors the display of holiday lights and trees on the Elm Street Common and various other Town Buildings. Also continuing the tradition of beautifully decorating throughout the Town is the West Springfield Central Maintenance Department.
In addition to the Caroling Sing-A-Long and Tree Lighting event, two local organizations will also host holiday events at the same time and location.
