After you’re done doing your early morning shopping to get in on those Black Friday “deals” at the stores, Hendersonville will be bringing Friday Night Lights to town.  The annual Downtown Lighting Ceremony will be taking place at the gazebo in downtown Hendersonville beginning at 5:30pm.  Bring the family down for free carriage rides, caroling, thousands of twinkling lights and a special appearance by Santa himself.  Anyone can participate in the Christmas caroling if they want to.  Song sheets will be available upon request.

Not only will Santa be available to listen to all the kids Christmas wish lists and pass out candy canes, but he will be flipping the switch to start the lighting ceremony.  Make sure to bring your cameras!  Even Hendersonville residents will be allowed to participate in the lighting ceremony in a “hands on” way for the very first time ever.  But, you’ll have to come to the Downtown Lighting Ceremony to see just how this will happen.  Just like past lighting ceremonies, four evergreen trees will be planted on Main Street for everyone to enjoy throughout the year.  Local nonprofit organizations have also decorated Christmas trees that will be visible around Main Street, with lots of lights in the flowerbeds and planters as well.  Make sure to bring your family to downtown Hendersonville when they bring Friday Night Lights to town on November 27, 2009.
