Tomorrow night (December 4) is the city of Cortland’s annual tree lighting ceremony.
The event will be virtual this year, beginning at 7 pm.
Members of the community can also watch it from their vehicle on a large inflatable screen that will be setup in the large parking lot at 188 Homer Avenue. That will open at 6 pm.
Just before the tree lighting, a special holiday video will play on the screen.
Registration for free virtual admission can be done here.
Santa Claus will also visit city neighborhoods at a social distance on December 13.
Father Christmas will get a special escort from the City Fire Department.
He also plans to make an appearance in Homer this weekend. Santa will be at the First United Methodist Church on Cayuga Street — next to the village green — between 8-11 am on Saturday (December 5).
Cookies, candy and gifts will be available at that event, with masks required at all times.
