The annual Upper Alton Association Christmas Tree Lighting will take place one week from today right next to the Robert Wadlow statue in upper Alton.  The event is sponsored by the Upper Alton Association, and the hope is to attract more people to the upper Alton business district through a series of events such as this one and the summer concert series.

Father Wickenhauser will bless the tree, and there will also be a performance by the Alton Middle School Choir  The ceremony begins Sunday, December 1st at 5pm..
