A beloved tradition to North Hills, our annual tree lighting celebration kicked off the holiday season last month. For over a decade, North Hills has hosted a fun and exciting event for families, friends and loved ones to come together and celebrate the start of the holiday season.

Below are some pictures to give you an idea of some activities involved in our annual tree lighting celebration:

The train is one of our most popular activities with the children and parents alike.

And, of course, the main event is the lighting of the 41-foot Christmas tree, which takes the place of the Main District’s fountain for the holiday season.

We hope to see you next year at our annual tree lighting celebration, but until then, enjoy the holiday season and we will anticipate your presence at our special tradition in 2017.
