The weather outside might turn frightful, but the Board of County Commissioners is promising a delightful ceremony nonetheless as the county hosts its eighth annual Christmas Tree Lighting today, Tuesday, Dec. 6, at the county office building, 225 North Center St., Westminster.

The festivities begin at 6 p.m. and, due to inclement weather, will be held in the lobby of the office building.

The ceremony will include a brief welcome by the commissioners, followed by holiday songs performed by the Francis Scott Key Chamber Singers.

After the tree lighting, refreshments will be provided by Gypsy's Tea Room and CUP Tea Bar & Café.
