DARIEN — The Darien Sport Shop’s annual tree lighting has kicked off the town’s holiday season on the Sunday after Thanksgiving for the past 42 years. Much like the rest of the traditions in 2020, this year it will look a little different due to COVID-19 precautions.
The Sport Shop will be holding its tree lighting virtually on Nov. 29 at 5 p.m. for Santa’s arrival. Residents can watch on the store’s Facebook page or Instagram page @DarienSportShop. The event is co-hosted by Darien’s Parks & Rec Department.
