Sunday evening was the official lighting of the Friendship Tree and the 24 trees in The Festival of Trees on Manchester’s Town Hall Common. A huge crowd had packed into the Congregational Church (SRO) for a 3:00 PM concert of Christmas songs and music, and then spilled out to fill the Town Hall Common and see the trees lit. They joined an already growing crowd who came for just the Tree Lighting and everyone brought the kids!
The Friendship Tree Lights!
Followed by the Festival of Trees!
With the busy weekend underway, Santa made his way to Town and the Community Center for pictures with all each of the kids, the Historical Society Home put on its Christmas best, and the Boy Scouts, Troop 3, were selling trees, wreaths and Evergreen rope!

A lot has happened since last Friday when the trees went up, but there are still a few trees to be decorated. Some groups are showing a little imagination with their trees… All trees are to be decorated by this Friday December 6th.
The Friendship Tree will be lit Sunday at 4:30 PM at the First Parish Church on Town Hall Common and the Trees in the Festival of Trees will be lit right after.
You can use a plow to plant or just truck it in all grown.

On the evening of December 18th, the sky was cold and clear as could be. I did not edit or enhance the colors in these photos at all; they really were this saturated.
I hope those Homies don't give up the location
I4C2 more “Art, Rocks!”
I Talked to Joey today. I had this great idea. Instead of leaving an “Art, Rock” someplace. I could use the GMG Petty cash to Hire a helicopter, fly over the Farmers Market and drop them on the shoppers below. He was’nt to thrilled with the idea. The guy’s a fart! It would’ve been AWESOME!
Here’s the Hint; After 4am Look for a natural Shady place, not a tent, or a building. Easy Enough. If you find it and if you’d like. Take a picture of yourself with the Rock and we’ll feature you on GMG. Goodluck! Sorry all finds are Final no returns.
Rockport, Good Harbor, Rockport and Downtown will be this weekends Target.
Only GMG Readers get the Hints.
