A tree-lighting ceremony in Tiffin is planned for 7 p.m. Friday on the court house square in the center of downtown.
A soloist is to perform an opening song, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
A choir from Elmwood Middle School plans to sing three songs and Cynthia Ramsdell of Heidelberg University is to accompany some of her student singers for Christmas carols.
Someone from Tiffin-Seneca Public Library is coming to read a Christmas story to the crowd.
A few benches are available for seating, but people may want to bring chairs or blankets to sit on.
Once the Christmas lights are on, a sing-along is to conclude the event.
