Lighting of the Trees

Fairhope Lighting of the Trees 2013
The Thursday before Thanksgiving is always Fairhope’s Annual Lighting of the Trees.
This year’s cool – but -not -cold weather brought out a record crowd.

The store windows were glowing and many businesses wisely
remained open for nighttime holiday shoppers.

Different community and school groups performed festive Christmas music.
Big – eyed children gazed into the illuminated toy shop window.

People flooded the local restaurants for a bite to eat.
This beautiful life-sized Santa created by local artist Jan Jones
was peering from the window of
local clothing shop, The Cat’s Meow.
He was making a list and checking it twice.

Then the countdown began . . .
And the lights went on all over the downtown area.
“Snow” flew through the air and all was merry and bright.
The downtown lights remain lit until after the Arts and Crafts Festival in March.
Come on down and take a look!

  2. Fairhope is the closest to Bedford Falls of any place I know! Even without the snow, this is a winter wonderland. I’m giving thanks for your newsletter that has cheered, informed, and entertained me all year!

  3. You really captured the moment…the sites and sounds. I felt as if I were there.
    The shops and restaurants have such a storybook feel. That was a great outing,
