From the Roanoke County website:
Roanoke County’s annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony will be held at Green Ridge Recreation Center on Saturday, December 3 at 6:30 p.m. New this year, everyone is invited to a FREE family event featuring games, songs, refreshments and more!
Join us in the Green Ridge gym from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for exciting family activities. Immediately following the tree lighting ceremony, Santa will arrive on a fire truck. Bring your cameras, as the jolly visitor from the North Pole will stick around for photos inside the center.
