Staff report
Paul Conrad/The Aspen Times

The 34th annual Sardy House tree lighting event is Sunday night at the historic Victorian house on Main Street across from Paepcke Park.

The hour-long event starts at 6 p.m. and includes carolers, and the high school and middle school bands will play on the front porch of the Sardy House. The lighting of the nearly 100-foot tall fir tree goes on with one of the oldest and tallest trees in Aspen. The house has been undergoing a renovation this past year after being sold in 2016 for $23.2 million.

Complimentary hot chocolate and cookies will be served.
