Village Tree Lighting // Drive Through Tosa Cares Donation Zone
Friday, December 4th

Join us for our socially-distanced tree lighting event!

  • Drive-through Tosa Cares donation zone with appearance by Santa himself!
    • Drive through the Farmer’s Market parking lot between 5:30pm and 7:00pm and donate food items or cash to the food pantry. With no holiday train this year, it is critically important for us to step up and support them the best we can.
    • See and wave to Santa from your vehicle and drop off your Santa Letters in his mailbox right on site.
    • Kids get a free Glow Candy Cane (while supplies last)
  • Drive up to Root Common Park to see the Village tree, which the Mayor will light at 6:00pm. For social distancing purposes, there will be no ceremony this year. Just walk or drive by on your own.
  • Visit our Holiday Cheer stations around the Village to pick up your Kids Coloring Contest Entries and your Holiday Cheer Passport. List of locations where you can find these will be updated on the Event page on Facebook or our website at
    • Turn in Coloring Pages and/or Holiday Cheer Passports to participating Village retailers by December 15th to be entered to win a variety of kids prizes!
