This is the 28th year of the Portland Tree Lighting Ceremony.  This year will feature a holiday sing-a-long featuring Portland’s own Thomas Lauderdale with members of Pink Martini and friends. With the 75 ft fir tree, 14,000 colorful lights and a festive community sing-a-long, this is an event you won’t want to miss in Portland’s living room.

 By Thanksgiving, a tall Christmas tree occupies the center of the square, with a tree-lighting ceremony [Portland Tree Lighting Ceremoney] held each year on the Friday evening after Thanksgiving. Another Christmas event in the square is Tuba Christmas. This is a celebration featuring nearly 200 tuba and euphonium players who perform a medley of holiday songs — Wikipedia

I plan on being at Portland’s Tree Lighting Ceremony, so watch for the photos!!  I REALLY hope they’re planning on using colored lights this year.  They’ve been going with white for years now — BORING!!
