The City of Fairhope will kick off the holiday season with the annual Fairhope Trees Lighting Celebration. Lights come on at 6 p.m. Due to COVID, necessary changes have been made to this year's event. Instead of having everyone gather at the main stage at Fairhope Avenue and Section Street, we ask those attending to remain socially distant from anyone outside of their family unit while wearing masks. Streets will close at 3:30 p.m. on Section Street from Magnolia Avenue to Johnson Avenue and on Fairhope Avenue from Church Street to Bancroft Street. This area will be open for pedestrian traffic only, giving everyone room to spread out and enjoy a night under the lights. Activities will include take-home kits for letters to Santa, live holiday music, and photos with Mrs. Claus. Photo opportunities will be socially distanced as well (i.e., residents cannot get too close to Mrs. Claus).
