The city of Camden will kick-off the holiday season with its annual tree lighting ceremony in front of Camden City Hall at 6 p.m. Friday. The ceremony will feature musical performances by a small ensemble from the Camden Community Concert Band and an ensemble from the Chamber Choir of Kershaw County. City utility crews have been busy placing decorations throughout Camden in preparation for the holiday season. Join us and “come throw the switch” at the tree lighting.

After the lighting, the city invites the public to stay in the holiday spirit and visit the preview night of the Holiday Sales Show at the Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County. This popular event happens the same day as the tree lighting, Friday, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. It will feature more than 40 vendors with fabulous, one-of-a-kind items for everyone on your list, even the most difficult to buy for. Set in the FAC’s historic Douglas-Reed House (ca. 1812), the show will feature a selection of fine, handcrafted works of art in clay, glass, fiber and wood, along with many other hand-crafted or homemade items. Normal shopping hours are from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1:30 to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Enjoy music and singing while sipping hot chocolate as Mayor Tony Scully kicks off the holiday season with this family-friendly event.
