Since 2012. The City of Benson has partnered with the Benson Museum to host our annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. The Tree Lighting Ceremony symbolizes the start of the Holiday Season - a time for family, friends and giving. This event will feature live music performed by Bost Family Traditions, arts and crafts, refreshments and the arrival of our very special guests Santa and Mrs. Claus. Following the lighting of the Tree at 7:00 pm, children will have the opportunity to visit with Santa! And of course the Museum and Quilt Gallery and Gift Shop will be open during this event.
