The Holiday Lighting on the Square is an annual event on the square where winter holiday lights are lit. The event features bands - when Brave Combo shows up, there is a polka mosh pit. Local businesses, individuals, and organizations also compete in a Wassail competition, in which each offers its own version of the holiday drink to the public free of charge and is judged on the deliciousness.

Every year for several decades, Brave Combo has performed at the Holiday Lighting.  However, in 2011, they were not invited to perform, because the committee of whatever-they-are decided to shake things up a bit by RUINING IT FOR EVERYONE.
