Members of the Roxbury Bandshell Preservation Alliance will host a free “Holiday Shellabration” at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Roxbury Park Bandshell on Franklin Street in the 8th Ward section of Johnstown.
The tree lighting and concert are a thank-you and early Christmas present to those who helped at the bandshell during the year, doing everything from attending concerts to volunteering services.
The celebration will begin with the lighting of a tree, which in the past has had 3,000 lights, 60 handmade ornaments with red ribbons and gold balls and a 3-foot lighted star for the top.
Beginning Sunday, the tree will be lit every evening during the holiday season and all day on Christmas.
A holiday concert will feature performances by Bill McClelland, Pastor Bob Wagner, Michelle DiGuardi and musical storyteller Tim Dabbs.
Free cookies and hot chocolate will be available, and Santa is expected to put in an appearance.
What: “Holiday Shellabration.”
When: 5 p.m. Sunday.
Where: Roxbury Park Bandshell, Franklin Street, Johnstown.
