The Festival of Lights/Tree Lighting Ceremony is Saturday at 5:30 p.m. on the Village Green in New Milford sponsored by the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce.

Highlights include the lighting of the Christmas trees on the green and a parade of lights courtesy of our volunteer fire departments and visits with Santa. The trees were put up by the United Methodist Men of the New Milford United Methodist Church. This is the 49th year the trees have been lit on the green.
