Tree Lighting Ceremony on the Marketplace

Church St. Marketplace tree

This annual Church Street tradition kicks off the holiday season with a classic rendition of the stage production, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Beautifully costumed and professionally presented, this humorous and delightful performance.

The performance culminates with the illumination of 250,000 LCD lights on Church Street, a cherished tradition. The 50-foot holiday tree is lit with thousands of colored LED lights in shades of red, gold, tangerine, blue and green. It shines the full length of the Marketplace, a beacon to all lovers of the holiday season.
