The Town of Highland Park will hold the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony for the “Big Pecan Tree” on Armstrong Parkway, just west of Preston Road, on Thursday, December 1, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. The activities start early this year! At 6:00 PM, come enjoy a live reindeer, face painting, Christmas treats, a photobus, and a special North Pole mailbox to get letters to Santa quickly.

At 7:00 PM, the ceremony begins with Highland Park Mayor Joel T. Williams, III greeting attendees and giving the history of the tree. Then we will turn on the 5,000 red, blue, orange, and green Christmas lights. The lights will be on each night through New Year’s Day.

The Highland Park High School Lads and Lassies, directed by Natalie Walker, will sing Christmas carols during the lighting ceremony. As in past years, Santa Claus has made special arrangements with the Highland Park Department of Public Safety to arrive on a big red fire truck.
