About Annual Tree Lighting

The Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration, located in the Commons of North Hills, is a beloved holiday event. This year’s Tree Lighting event will feature snow slopes, trackless train rides, kids crafts and activities, a bounce house, and a vendor village. As Santa Claus arrives at 6pm, the 41 foot Christmas Tree is lit amidst a joyous chorus of “Santa Clause Is Coming to Town.”

Event is FREE to the public.
