Friday at the Crossroads returns this week for its final installment of 2019 with a Winter Wonderland theme. 

A highlight of the event will be the annual tree lighting hosted by Downtown Crossville Inc. at the Crossville Depot. 

The ceremony promises something for everyone, with Santa and Mrs. Claus starting the festivities at 4 p.m.

Parents are encouraged to bring the children and a camera for a photo opportunity with Santa.

At 4:30 p.m., the Sweet T Cloggers will dance to favorite sounds of the season.

The holiday season will become official when Mayor James Mayberry turns on the Christmas tree lights at 5. 

Hot chocolate to keep the chill away will be available.  

Area residents are encouraged to go early and grab a spot for a chance to bring back those memories of a special time and focus on the magic of Christmas.
