The Hamilton Downtown BIA is inviting Hamiltonians to Join them online December 4 as they light up the downtown with the Christmas Tree of Hope and festive lighting in Gore Park at 6:30 pm. Cozy up with a hot beverage or meal from your favourite downtown restaurant and tune in for this year’s virtual event (there will be no in-person attendance permitted for the tree lighting). The Christmas Tree of Hope Lighting and Concert marks the start of the Christmas season throughout Hamilton.
The annual Children’s Fund Christmas Tree of Hope was founded in 1976 to bring hope to kids and families struggling through the holiday season. This year more than ever our local charities need support to help our community through the holiday season.
