On Friday, Dec. 2, the City of Lakewood will throw the biggest Ho-Ho-Ho holiday party with its 20th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.
The bells will be jing-jing-jingling from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Lakewood City Hall, 6000 Main St.
Once again, opportunities for Christmas cheer at this free, family friendly event will come aplenty. Some of the scheduled fun includes:
- Check out entries in the City’s first “Inspiring Young Creators” Competition . The LEGO-inspired creativity and imagination of our community’s youth will be on display, piece by piece.
- Christmas music and carols from the Clover Park High marching band, Lakes High Studio Choir, Mann Middle School Choir.
- The talents of the Charisma Dancers.
- Arts, crafts and “Minute-To-Win-It” games for youth and youth-at-heart.
- As always, a Christmas parade in front of City Hall and a visit by the Kringle-y One himself, Santa Claus!
In Lakewood, the annual Tree-Lighting signals the start of the Christmas season. Join your neighbors and help us welcome the holidays on Dec. 2.
