What's Happening in High Falls?



Join the community on Saturday, December 5 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm for the 2015 High Falls-Marbletown Tree Lighting Ceremony at the corner of Route 213 and Second Street in High Falls. Gather at the tall evergreen tree in the center of town, adjacent to the Depuy Canal House for this FREE family annual holiday event that officially ushers in the holidays—kids bring your parents, neighbors come and make new friends. We are very proud to announce big changes: the old tree has been outfitted with almost 2800 all-new lights and with a new look! Also, Second Street will be illuminated. Christmas carols will be sung by Rondout Valley Intermediate Carolers, directed by Emily Murphy, the ceremony will be emceed by Radio Woodstock’s Ron VanWarmer. Complimentary hot soup will be provided by Kitchenette. The highlight of the event is the arrival of Santa Claus on a fire engine courtesy of The High Falls Volunteer Fire Department. After the festivities all are invited to the Community Church of High Falls for hot chocolate and cookies. Please be sure to bring an unwrapped toy to donate to the Toys for Tots program to help less-fortunate children this season. This annual tradition is brought to you free of charge by The High Falls Civic Association which holds numerous special community events all year-round. The Tree Lighting is sponsored in part by FRED.
