TRUMBULL — A new holiday special will join the television lineup next week. While it may not reach the iconic status of Rudolph or Frosty, town officials hope the Trumbull tree lighting draws a virtual crowd when it premieres at 7 p.m. on Dec. 11.
“Obviously, because of COVID, there’s no gatherings like there would be for a tree lighting in a normal year,” said Lara Walden, program manager at Trumbull Community Television. “But we do want to continue the tradition as best we can given the circumstances. We want to help build the holiday spirit without putting anyone at risk.”
