It’s a tradition to gather at the steps of the County Courthouse to discover the magic words that will light the trees signaling the beginning of the holiday season.  Join us Thursday, December 5 at 7 p.m. for the Lighting of the Green and enjoy performances by local choirs and music groups adding to the celebration.  This event follows the Annual Christmas Parade at 6 p.m. in downtown Denton including custom floats, marching bands, fire trucks and queens.  For parade entry information call the Town of Denton at 479-2050.


  • Occurs Thursday, December 5th, 2019 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
