On December 6th, 2015 the City of Henderson hosted its annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. The public is invited to gather outside First United Methodist Church on Garnett Street in front of Veterans Park. The mayor counts down and everyone yells Light That Tree!
The tree is lit, and everyone is invited inside the church for a ceremony of song and prayer. Mayor Pete O’Geary presides the ceremony while numerous guests perform. This year there were performances by the Men’s Quartet, Henderson Middle School Choir, Greater Little Zion United Holy Church, and Dabney School Choir.
