Truckee Holiday Festival and Tree Lighting – on Friday Dec 2 at the train depot. Enjoy music, Christmas carols, refreshments, and holiday shopping specials. Elementary school children will decorate the trees down town with homemade ornaments. For a small donation to the American Cancer Society and its Love Lights a Tree program, you may hang an ornament in honor of a cancer survivor or in memory of loved ones lost to the disease. Festivities begin at 4:00 pm, with Santa arriving at 4:30 and the Bud Fish Tree lighting Ceremony is at 5:30.
