(December 5, 2011) The City of Frisco will host its annual Tree Lighting ceremony and Kid’s Holiday Store on Friday, December 9.
The annual Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. at Simpson Plaza, which is located in front of the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd. The Kids’ Holiday Store will be open from 5 – 9 p.m. at City Hall, which is located inside the municipal center.
Entry for the Kids’ Holiday Store will move to the front of City Hall – and shoppers will be served on a ‘first-come, first served’ basis. Shopping sessions will continue to last twenty minutes.
The Kids’ Holiday Store will be open to children, ages 3 – 12, providing them an opportunity to find something special for mom and dad – or even a brother or sister. Everything in the store is priced at $5 or less. “Santa’s Helpers” volunteers will assist young shoppers, who will go home with wrapped gifts to surprise their loved ones.
This year’s major contributors to the Kids’ Holiday Store include Heart’s Desire, IKEA, Paper Affair and Main Event.
Other store donors include: As Seen on TV, Christian Brothers Automotive, Color Me Mine, CVS Pharmacy, Distinctively Hers, Dollar Zone, Every Dog’s Day Canine Resort, Family Video, FieldhouseUSA, Frisco Community Theatre, Frisco Discovery Center, Frisco Heritage Museum, GattiTown, Half Price Books, Home Depot, Kids N’ Art Studio, Lacy’s Elite Taekwondo, Lakes Tennis Academy, Mr. Clean Car Wash, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Pump It Up, Salon M, Sam Moon, Sci-Tech Discovery Center, The Big Game, Walgreens, and Young Chefs Academy.
Aside from the Tree Lighting and the Kids’ Holiday Store, the City of Frisco invites the public to enjoy its spectacular holiday lights show choreographed to music. The city partners with Frisco Square on the light display, which runs from 6 – 10 p.m. nightly now through January 7. The light show is considered to be one of the largest choreographed light displays in Texas! Visitors may also enjoy “Lights on Ice”, Frisco’s first ever outdoor ice skating rink, located in Frisco Square. Skating instructors and students with the Dr Pepper Arena will perform from 6:30 – 7 p.m. For more information, go to www.friscosquare.com
Both the Tree Lighting and Kids’ Holiday Store are elements of Frisco’s Merry Main Street, which was cancelled December 3 due to rain.
