The town’s annual holiday tree lighting will be held Sunday on the town common, starting at 4 p.m. with a performance by carolers. At about 4:30 p.m., Santa Claus and Frosty the Snowman will arrive on an antique fire engine, greeting the children. Shortly after, Santa will flick the switch, lighting the trees. All the trees on the common and the adjacent Simond’s Park will be lit, as will decorative lights on Town Hall and the other nearby municipal buildings. And in a new feature this year, the event will close with a fireworks display, set to begin shortly after the tree lighting. Meanwhile, town officials are reminding the public that Burlington’s annual winter parking ban is in effect. Vehicles cannot be parked or left unattended on a street between 2 and 8 a.m. through April 1.
