Lakewood's 15th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Festival

Santa Claus is coming to Lakewood! All Lakewood residents are invited to the 15th annual holiday festival Friday, Dec.3, from 4 to 7 p.m., at Lakewood City Hall, 6000 Main Street in Lakewood.

The Christmas festival includes a small parade from Starbuck's to the front of City Hall, the Lakewood Christmas tree lighting, free children's crafts, holiday music, refreshments and a visit with Santa where kids can tell him what they want for Christmas and receive a candy cane in return (candy canes will be handed out instead of gifts this year).

Experience the lighting of Lakewood's Christmas tree at 4:30pm and welcome Santa to town at 4:45pm. Dress warm! Participants are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for the Emergency Food Network.
