Flossmoor kicks off holiday season with festivities on Saturday 

If your holiday season is not complete without seeing a performance from a strolling trombone choir, Flossmoor’s first holiday event of the season on Saturday, Nov. 26, will check that box, according to Flossmoor Events Manager Stephanie Wright.

“This will be our second year having the tree lighting the same day as Small Business Saturday,” Wright said. “It is intentional. We’re so grateful for all the work they do all year long. This is one day we can really shine a light on them.”

The event downtown will be from 3 to 5 . . .
