Blue Tree Kicks Off Holiday Season


Despite the town common being under construction, the annual Blue Tree Lighting celebration continued this year on Greene’s Field.

Aired: December 8, 2022
This year, it was going to be a little bit different. It had to be. The town common was fenced off, and while the official tree was still decked out to celebrate the season, the countdown had to occur elsewhere. Fortunately, a couple just a block away another tree was being prepped to be the symbolic center of the 2022 celebration. And, from what we saw, Greene’s Field did just fine when carolers, residents, officials and even the Grinch were able to come together for some holiday cheer!
