WILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington Fourth of July Committee Chair Patrick Giroux was recently in front of the Board of Selectmen to ask for the town’s permission to hold the Annual Town Tree Lighting on Saturday, December 4, 2021, from 4pm to 7pm, on the Town Common.
At the end of his presentation, Giroux addressed the Fourth of July Committee’s plans for a 2022 Fun on the Fourth celebration, following a two-year break due to COVID-19.
“We do very much look forward to a celebration next summer,” said Giroux. “The Committee hasn’t stopped meeting since COVID-19 broke out. We’ve been holding Zoom meetings and recently resumed in-person meetings. We’ve been planning this event for nearly 2 years now.”
“Pending the necessary approvals, we anticipate a 4-day celebration with fireworks, a carnival, concerts, and family activities. All the small details are still to be determined,” added Giroux. “The celebration will be turning 40. It’s one of Wilmington’s oldest and coveted traditions.”
Giroux noted the Fourth of July Committee has some new members, but are still looking for volunteers in various capacities to help execute the event.
Giroux and Committee are currently planning the Town’s Annual Tree Lighting on Saturday, December 4, 2021,from 4pm to 7pm. The event will include horse-drawn hayrides, complimentary cookies and hot chocolate, carols for the season, and the highly anticipated visit from Santa Claus.
