The Holiday Tree Lighting & Kwanzaa Celebration on Almeda is the official kick-off for the holiday season and is free of charge. The show features live performances by J. Paul Jr. and the Zydeco Nubreeds, Kwanzaa Drummers and Dancers, and Coldwell Elementary, among others.
Santa will also be on site for photos with children and the event also offers a fantastic kids zone, which includes a rock climbing wall.
Guests have the opportunity to enjoy a holiday beverage and food available from vendor stands and food trucks. Santa and Council Member Dwight Boykins will light a towering Holiday Tree, glowing with colorful Christmas lights and shimmering ornaments followed by a one-a-kind fireworks display.
This event is free and open to the public.
