Rain or shine, Ramona’s Christmas Tree Lighting is a go

A little rain won’t stop Ramona Chamber of Commerce from staging its 21st annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Saturday.

The outdoor festivities will be in Collier Park, 626 E St., from 4 to 8 p.m.

Most of the activities will be covered either by the gazebo or canopies, said chamber director Hans Hemkes, event chair. Santa will have all the protection he needs so he can hear the children’s Christmas wishes.

Two snow machines, a Kids Crafts and Cookie Painting Zone, face painting, food, vendors, photos with Santa, the town Christmas tree lighting, and music and entertainment are on the roster.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome.

Come hungry. Food vendors will be offering everything from Mexican food and macaroni and cheese to holiday pies and eggnog.

Hemkes, owner of Ramona Martial Arts, will give youngsters an opportunity to learn how to break boards. The lessons will be supervised, he promises parents.
