5 Things To Know on Nov. 13: Christmas Tree Arrives Downtown
A great way to start the day with a quick look at the events and happenings in town.
Welcome to “5 Things,” your daily resource for community events, happenings in town and other little tidbits of information. Here are five things you need to know on Tuesday, Nov. 13.
1. Falling: The temperature will drop over the course of the day on Tuesday, from high temperatures into the 60s on Monday and lows only getting into the 50s overnight, the temperature will get down into the 40s by dinnertime on Tuesday. The sky will be cloudy with the chance of showers.
2. Christmas Tree: The town Christmas tree for 2012 will be cut down and moved into place in Danvers Square on Tuesday morning. It is scheduled to be cut at 7 a.m. and moved into place by 9 a.m. The tree lighting is scheduled for Dec. 1 from 2-5 p.m.
3. Black Friday: The shockingly early opening times that some national chains plan for “Black Friday” and Thanksgiving evening have been in the news in recent days. Here in Massachusetts, Blue Laws prohibit stores from opening on Thanksgiving Day, but Liberty Tree Mall plans to open earlier than even at 12:30 a.m. on Black Friday. Opening times for other local stores was listed in our coverage last week.
4. School: Students return to school on Tuesday after a three-day weekend for the Veterans Day holiday.
5. Downtown Improvement: The Downtown Improvement Committee meets on Tuesday morning in the Town Manager’s conference at Town Hall, where it will discuss the winter holiday festival and overnight street parking, among other topics.
