Au Sable Forks The Eighth Annual Christmas in the Forks, an old fashioned Town Yuletide Christmas will include the highlight of the day, the tree lighting ceremony at 6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Town of Black Brook Town Clock.
Many hands help to make Christmas in the Forks glorious each year. This year, we want to thank Matt and Shannon Stanley of Santa’s Workshop of Wilmington for helping to spread the Christmas Cheer. Santa’s friends from the North Pole will join the Holiday Party.
Also helping were Au Sable Forks downtown merchants, the Au Sable Forks Fire Department, the Au Sable Forks Free Library, Plattsburgh’s Media Central, Placid Productions, the Clock Project Committee, the Towns of Jay and Black Brook employees, the Au Sable Forks Revitalization and Beautification Committees, the Hollywood Theatre, Clinton and Essex County Sherriff’s Departments and the Tree Lighting Committee, chaired by Helen Wirt-Kennedy have all collaborated as sponsors to make Dec. 1 a magical night for children of all ages.
The Au Sable Forks Clock Park Christmas Tree will be donated this year by Robbie and Renee Baer from Jay. The Bair’s tree allows them to be an extra special part of this year’s celebration.

2:30-3:30 p.m.: “Story Hour with Mrs. Claus,” The Au Sable Forks Free Library
