The potential for continuing severe weather and flooding in the area has forced organizers of the Collegedale Commons kickoff to postpone the event from Monday night until Thursday.

All planned activities, including the community Christmas tree lighting, will take place at the future site of the commons, near City Hall in Collegedale. Activities will begin at 5:30 p.m.

The event is completely free for the community.


In addition to a tree lighting ceremony, guests can expect food trucks, live music and other vendors. Santa Claus is scheduled to make an appearance.

The event will also serve as the official kickoff for the community fundraising phase. Volunteers will be present to discuss the various fundraising levels and offer information on how you can support ongoing efforts with the project.
