5 Things to Know This Week: Tree Lighting, City Council, Fresh Market

Let us help you plan your week! From the annual Gulfport's Christmas Tree Lighting to extended hours at this week's Gulfport Fresh Market - you'll want to add these events to your calendar.

Tree Lighting Tonight: Everyone is invited to the annual event tonight, Monday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. at Clymer Park.

Bundle up for an evening of festive music by the Gulfport Recreation division, and join the Mayor, Council and Yvonne Johnson in caroling, a true Gulfport tradition. There will be refreshments and festive cheer as the Mayor lights the tree for another holiday season. He will be looking for a few helpers this year, so kids get ready. This is a free admission event and all are welcome! There just may be a visit from the big man in red himself to listen to your little ones Holiday wishes.

Extended Hours at Market: This Tuesday is the first Tuesday of the month and that means the weekly market will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. That's right - at night! There will be more than 50 vendors on Beach Boulevard. Also, be sure to stop by the Art Village Courtyard at 6 p.m. to watch James Clark at T and Me Tea Company perform a live cooking demonstration.

Correction: The 6pm cooking demonstration at the evening Fresh Market on Tuesday will be held at the patio next to the former Salty Sal's at 2930 Beach Blvd. South. (Not at Art Village Courtyard.) Chef James Clark of T & Me will demonstrate his popular recipe for sun-dried tomato foccacia bread, including food samples and Q & A.
