Tree Lighting is still ON

We are all aware of the current weather forecast and we are sure you are all wondering about the scheduled event for tomorrow evening – Perkasie’s Famous Tree Lighting.

The event is “ON”

The tent is up and the town is ready to go forward.

VENDORS: If you find that you are unable to attend, please call 215-257-4989. We are currently expecting all of our entertainment and our food/craft/business vendors to attend. There won’t be any refunds due to the weather.

Let’s not let a little rain dampen our spirits! Come on out and see Santa light the tree! We’ll be there!
