Out of respect for measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19, the 2020 Hillsboro Holly Days Celebration & Tree Lighting Ceremony will be a virtual, broadcast event only. The celebration will run from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on Sunday, Nov. 22. In addition to the mayor flipping the light switch, the program includes music, Mrs. Claus’s Pet Parade, and appearances by Santa himself. The live-stream will be coming from a remote location rather than the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza. Also, there will be no artisan marketplace at the Plaza this year.
