Make our festivities your family tradition

We're counting down to Christmas with our 21st Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, Dec. 1, 2017 starting at 5 p.m.

Come early to grab the perfect sport along 59th Street in Lakewood Towne Center to catch candy and watch the holiday parade (5:45 p.m. start). Santa will make his grand entrance aboard the West Pierce Fire and Rescue fire truck at 6 p.m.

Once the parade is over join in the celebration at City Hall where we'll have live entertainment inside and out. Clover Park students will sing carols and we'll have a special performance by the Tacoma TotemAires Barbershop Harmony Chorus.

Santa will be ready to greet your child and be part of your family memories with a photo op.

New this year is Candy Cane Lane, where visitors can stroll through boutique vendors with unique items for sale -- a perfect chance to start your holiday shopping early.

Inside City Hall children's Winter Wonderland LEGO creations will be on display. Register your child for the contest .

Enjoy family-friendly activities with "minute-to-win-it" games and arts and crafts.

Starbucks will provide hot drinks and holiday treats. Food vendors, including Stacks Burgers, will have food for purchase.

Own a business? Get in the holiday spirit by entering our Holiday Storefront Decorating Contest. (Winners announced Dec. 5.)

We can't wait to celebrate with you!
