Music will be performed by the Georgia Brass Band, Lilburn Middle School Chorus and Lilburn First Baptist Proclamation Handbell Ensemble.

School groups, sports teams and non-profit organizations can enter the city's "Deck the Hall" tree contest, in which groups must decorate a 7-inch tree. Spectators can buy tickets used to vote for their favorite trees. The votes will equal donations to each organization, and each vote is an entry to win the tree that is voted upon. Registration documents can be found online.

Lilburn City Hall is located at 340 Main St.
