It will be beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Douglas.
The annual Douglas Christmas tree lighting will be at 6:30 p.m. today.
The public is invited to attend the lighting held on the lawn at Douglas Community United Methodist Church, 1106 3rd St., Douglas.
Mayor Beth Weldon will turn on the tree’s lights. The Voices of Alaska Directed by Missouri Smyth will perform Christmas music and lead carols, and the Rev. Jason Cornish will lead invocation.
The Douglas United Methodist Church congregation will provide cookies and warm drinks after the lighting. Also after the lighting, there will be a free skate with Santa and elves at Treadwell Ice Arena, 105 Savikko Road, starting at 7:45 p.m.
The tree will be lit 24 hours per day through Jan. 5, 2019.
