FAIRMONT, W.Va (WDTV) - The City of Fairmont will be holding the first official Fairmont Christmas tree lighting as part of the Hometown Holiday Celebration.

Main Street Fairmont said a partnership with the city and WVU Medicine Fairmont Medical Center has purchased a 20 foot Christmas tree.

The tree will be placed at the entrance to the historic downtown shopping district each year.

The inaugural tree lighting ceremony is set for Dec. 8 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the greenspace adjacent to Huntington Bank.

Dan Swiger, Main Street Fairmont Executive Director, said this will be a great way to kick off the Hometown Holiday Celebration.

“We believe this is a great way to kick off our Hometown Holiday Celebration,” Swiger said. “The tree lighting ceremony will include music by the East Fairmont Elizabethans, a hot chocolate bar sponsored by The Joe, and the tree will be lit by one of the Main Street Coloring Contest winners.”
