In partnership with the city of Binghamton, the organizations will host a holiday tree lighting at the Washington Street Mall on Court Street. The city will close Court Street between Hawley and State Streets, with Washington Street blocked between Hawley and Court Streets to allow for the festivities.

The Discovery Center of the Southern Tier will host children’s activities from 4-5:30 p.m., the tree lighting takes place at 5:30 p.m., and various musicians will perform throughout the event.

Jackson’s General Store will serve hot food and hot cocoa while Beer Tree Brew will offer up craft beers and Batch coffee. Numerous businesses plan to be open for Small Business Saturday shopping.

The Greater Binghamton Chamber launched the Placemaking Office earlier this year. Its goal is to create opportunities to bring people throughout the community together.
