2017 Tree Lighting

Join us on Saturday November 25 at 6pm for the 5th Annual Tree Lighting ceremony at Echo Lake Park!

Celebrate the season with Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the Marshalls Creek Fire Company as we light the tree. Music will be provided by the East Stroudsburg High School North Choir and Band. Cocoa and treats, as well as photos with Santa, will also be available. Parking will be available at the Marshall’s Square shopping center next to the park and the Presbyterian Church across the street.  Constables will be on hand to ensure safety.


The event begins at 6pm with music and treats and Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive at 6:30 to light the tree.  They will then stick around to visit with the children.

The event is completely FREE to attend, and donations in the form of toys or non-perishable food items will be collected for Toys For Tots and Bushkill Outreach; two organizations that help share the cheer for families in need every holiday season and throughout the year.


“The past four tree lightings have been a blast,” said Township Supervisor and Parks and Recreation Director Mike Dwyer.  “This event has become one of our most popular Township traditions.”

Echo Lake Park is located at 5206 Milford Road and is open to the general public every day from sunrise to sunset. For more information about the Tree Lighting event, or any of MST’s parks, please contact Chris Rain at 570-223-8920 x119 or
