Lighting of the Christmas Tree at the top of Radar Hill. We will be live-streaming the event on The Bee, and will have a separate stream with drone footage. Tune in at 615pm for our coverage including an interview with Becky Fawson, current President & CEO of Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce.
1987 marked the first lighting of the Christmas Tree at the top of Radar Hill. The tradition started with the efforts of the Downtown Merchant Association. The first lighting fulfilled the wishes of 3 year old Lauren Fanire who had been diagnosed with leukemia. She was able to flip the switch and light up Kingman with the then call “Community Friendship Tree”.
In 1993, Carol Anderson (Mayor of Kingman) and Stu Anderson whom was a board member for the Kingman Chamber of Commerce worked together to keep the tradition alive.
A special thanks to Unisource (Formerly Citizens Utilities) for their involvement in maintaining space at the top of Radar Hill for this annual lighting. The Chamber of Commerce funds the electricity to power the tree through the holidays which ends after the new year.
Fundraising has begun at the Kingman Chamber with $10 Paper bulbs where folks can write their name or company on the donated from line.
