On Friday, December 1, the Silver City Kiwanis will do their annual gazebo lighting in Gough Park and the Kiwanis youth groups will again be competing in a sing-off of favorite Christmas songs. The winners will receive cash prizes that they can use for their club’s activities or service projects.

The gazebo lighting began a few years back with a request from Silver City Mainstreet for the Silver City Kiwanis Club to put some holiday spirit and décor in Gough park by lighting the gazebo during this very special season. Kiwanis is all for and about the children of our community and so it was only natural to involve them in this service project. In the spirit of Christmas and through songs of the season they "light up our life" as we light up the gazebo.

November 13, 2017. SILVER CITY, NM. The Guadalupe Montessori School (GMS) will host the Festival of Trees for its 5th holiday season! This year’s festival will occupy the old Curious Kumquat building (111 E. College Ave.), in the heart of downtown Silver City from December 8-17. This community event is a fundraiser for the Guadalupe Montessori School, with proceeds supporting all aspects of the school’s operation, including tuition assistance and historic facilities preservation. The Festival of Trees has a rich and storied history in our town, having been produced in the past by Penny Park and the LDS Church. GMS is proud to carry forth the tradition of this beloved Silver City event.

The Festival of Trees is a celebration of the holiday season and the wonder of individual expression and creativity. Local artists, individuals, and organizations will decorate live Christmas trees and agave stalks, and all community members will have a chance to purchase the decorated and undecorated trees, as well as seasonal plants, high quality gifts made by local artisans, and homemade holiday baked goods. The diverse crew of decorators makes for a breathtaking presentation of trees, from traditional to whimsical.
