This year marks the 2nd Annual Downtown Ayer Winter Holiday Candlelight Stroll & Tree Lighting Ceremony. The “magic” of the night in Downtown Ayer will come from the 1,000 candles, hand-made at Ymittos Candle Factory in Lowell, MA. Our joyful Candlelight Strollers meet at the Ayer Rail Trail Parking Lot at 4:45PM; there the Ymittos Candles will be handed out and lit for the “Big Stroll”; the Candlelight Stroll begins at exactly 5:00PM as we begin our memorable and glowing walk along Main Street to the Grand Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony at Ayer Town Hall at 5:15PM.
Main Street Candlelight Strollers will be met at Ayer Town Hall with wonderful Holiday Singing performed by the Ayer/Shirley Middle School Chorus, and a dance performance by the young dancers of Maria’s School of Dance.
Then the Big Countdown to the Holiday Tree Lighting led by Santa Claus & Mrs. Claus!
Following the Holiday Tree Lighting Santa Claus & Mrs. Claus will be at Ayer Town Hall, in a magnificently decorated reception room, to meet and to hear Christmas Wishes from all the children (and even adults) of our hometown of Ayer.
Saturday, December 2nd in Downtown Ayer will be the authentic, memorable, meaningful, and joyful way to welcome the Winter Holiday Season to New England!
Then on Sunday, Dec 3rd at 9:00PM, tune into ION Television Channel and watch “The Spruces & The Pines”, an independent movie that was filmed in April in Downtown Ayer! You will see scenes from Main Street, Union Coffee Roaster, Page Block, Pirone Park, and more! And you will also catch lots of Ayer-folks in many scenes in the new Christmas movie.
