BLAIR, NEBRASKA (2023 November 9, Thursday) – As the leaves in Blair, Nebraska, turn to their autumnal palette, the community is buzzing with anticipation for the Tannenbaum event. A successor to the beloved Sugar Plum Festival, the Tannenbaum event has swiftly become a new beacon of tradition, illuminating the town with holiday cheer.
This year, the Tannenbaum event is set to sparkle on Thursday, November 16th, 2023, from 5 to 7 pm. Locals and visitors alike are invited to gather at City Hall, 218 South 16th Street, to indulge in the holiday spirit. Attendees can look forward to a complimentary soup supper, hot cocoa, and cookies, all set against the backdrop of a festive Christmas tree lighting. Live music will fill the air, reindeer will add a touch of magic, and more surprises await to delight people of all ages.
The Tannenbaum event carries the torch passed on by the Sugar Plum Festival, which for nearly two decades was a holiday staple in Washington County. The festival’s cancellation was a decision made by the Washington County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors due to the logistical challenges of ensuring crowd safety. The festival, once a fabric of the community’s holiday celebrations, left a void that the Tannenbaum event now fills with new memories and traditions.
As Blair continues to adapt and create new ways to celebrate together, the Tannenbaum event stands as a testament to the community’s resilience and ability to foster joy in the face of change. So, let’s spread the word and ensure that the Tannenbaum event shines bright in the hearts of all who partake in its festive offerings. Together, let’s make the Tannenbaum event a cherished memory and a joyful beginning to the holiday season in Blair, Nebraska.
