Ghent’s Holiday Open House Weekend starts with the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, December 5 at 6:30pm in front of Blair Middle School on Colley Avenue.  Join your friends from the Ghent Business Association for a family friendly event to help spread the holiday spirit throughout Ghent.  Enjoy music and caroling from area school groups including Blair Middle School, Norfolk Collegiate, St. Patrick’s Catholic School, and The Williams School.  Warm up with hot chocolate and cookies provided by Farm Fresh.  And, there will be a special appearance by Santa Claus as he helps light the tree.  Don’t miss the fun!

To kick off the season of giving, bring a new, unwrapped toy to benefit the girls and boys of ForKids.  Or, take a tag off of the tree that night and return your gift to the ForKids Holiday Shop located at Good Mojo, 2411 Granby Street.  Donations can be dropped off Monday-Saturday, 10am-6pm and Sunday, 12-5pm, December 5-13.

Come early or stay late and make a reservation to dine with friends or family at one of Ghent’s delectable restaurants afterwards for a complete evening of festive fun.
