The 2020 LIGHTS OF FIRCREST Display Contest Winners
It was so hard to choose from all the fantastic displays! We really do live in the most amazing town!
2020 Fircrest Tree Lighting Ceremony
We are excited to present the 2020 Fircrest Tree Lighting Ceremony. This year looked a little different due to Covid restrictions. Thanks to our Mayor Hunter George, Councilmember Joe Barrentine and the sponsors of the Lights of Fircrest Display Contest (Gutter Maintenance Services: the Hawes Family), we can celebrate the tradition from the comfort of our homes!
We had a terrific turnout for the 2020 HUNT. The weather was perfect and over 250 kids enjoyed the treasure hunt around Fircrest. There were prizes along the way at the festive clue boxes and a treasure at the X. Our awesome sponsors, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services South Sound Properties, created a fun photo booth for the starting point of The HUNT.
