The Granite Falls Merchants Association is sponsoring the seventh annual Light Up Granite Falls event. Local businesses are asked to sponsor a Christmas tree in the downtown area. The trees will be decorated by students from the local schools and will be on display throughout the holiday season. This event coincides with the Light Up Caldwell events in Caldwell County municipalities to encourage citizens to visit the local downtown areas and to shop locally whenever possible. If your business is interested in sponsoring a tree, contact Tammy Hagerty at 396-1150.
