Terrible tree lighting

Posted on Wed, Nov 30, 2011 at 10:57 AM

To the person(s) who organized this year's HRM Tree Lighting - what were you thinking?! I went with a few friends expecting a holiday themed, fun and upbeat event... instead I was bored out of my mind, along with most of the audience that left with their children half way through the event. Shrek was obviously a big hit, but the skit that was done wasn't even about the holidays - it was about their wedding anniversary! The band was ok, but the majority of Christmas songs they played were super slow and boring and you could see the energy being sucked out of the audience as the show went on. The fireworks display went off from BEHIND the stage so you couldn't even see half of them, safety issue or not, it could have been better laid out/planned. Santa was the only highlight, he was authentic and sweet and even took pictures with the kids. I’m sure HRM paid a lot for this event and the salary of the person responsible for planning it, so I expected way better. Let me plan it next year and I'll show you what a great Tree Lighting should look like! —Unmet Expectations
