COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. — The town of Collierville came together Tuesday for some early holiday cheer with the return of its annual Christmas Tree Lighting.
With hot chocolate and music to lead up to the tree lighting, the famous Collierville Town Square was packed with people after having to cancel last year's event due to COVID.
But the Collierville tree lighting wasn't the only thing that is planned for the holiday season. The 44th annual Christmas parade will be on Saturday and for more events, just visit the town's website.
"I think it's important because you want to give people some confidence and faith, something to look forward to, and what perfect time than the holidays. So, everybody getting out here gathering, being able to have fun shows that we can heal and come together. So, it's needed," said one person enjoying the festivities.
