The benefit for Villages residents to having three town squares is that every major event is done in triplicate. Holiday tree-lighting festivals are scheduled from 4-9pm Nov. 27 at Spanish Springs Town Square, Nov. 29 at Lake Sumter Landing Market Square, and Dec. 1 at Brownwood Paddock Square. Entertainment will include bands, belly dancers, cheerleaders, hula dancers, singers, stilt walkers, and, of course, appearances by Santa and Mrs. Claus. The festivals also remember the reason for the season by conducting gift and supply drives to benefit the Lake Sumter Children’s Advocacy Center, Ronald McDonald House, and other charities for underprivileged children.
