Join Blackburn College on Wednesday, November 30 as we kick off the holiday season and illuminate Carlinville with Blackburn College’s second annual Tree of Lights. The tree, decorated with 50,000 lights donated by ACE Hardware, will be on display through the holiday season.
A holiday event for the whole family, the Tree of Lights ceremony is free and open to the public, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in front of Ludlum Hall on Blackburn’s campus.
During the festivities visitors can enjoy carols performed by the Blackburn Voices ensemble, and hot cocoa and refreshments served in the newly renovated Claire Jaenke Alumni Center. The campus will also be adorned with a variety of new holiday decorations.
Make it an evening by having dinner in the Demuzio Campus Center, serving from 5:00 p.m. – 6:45 p.m., or watch the women’s and men’s basketball games at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. in Dawes Gym, as the Blackburn Beavers take on Eureka College.
The community is welcome to visit campus and enjoy Blackburn’s holiday spirit.
