Holiday Tree Lighting

December 5th, 2017

Tonight, December 5th, 2017, will be an extraordinary evening; and the City of San Gabriel invites you and your family. This cheerful evening starting from 6pm will be the city’s annual Tree Lighting Ceremony where all the holiday splendor begins. It is a time when the whole community gathers at Plaza Park to enjoy the mood and have great fun. The party will kick off at 6pm with talented students from various local schools entertaining everyone with all-time holiday classic melodies.

At the Tree Lighting Ceremony, you can start off the evening with a warm drink as you mingle to catch up with others in the community. It is a great time to reconnect old friendships while sparking new ones. With the spirit of the holidays, don’t forget to bring a gift for the ‘Spark of Love’ drive. This unwrapped gift will go a long way in making a difference for those in need. The climax of the ceremony will be at 7pm when the lights are turned on to brighten Plaza Park with great majesty. The lighting of the holiday trees is always a magical experience.

Bring all your children along because Santa is sure to be there. In his classic fire truck, Santa will only be too eager to meet all the children as he greets all with great cheer. Don’t worry about dinner because you are covered. There will be food trucks on the site from as early as 5pm to 8:30pm. It will be an awesome time to enjoy some of your favorite delicacies while surrounded by the holiday spirit of love and joy. Border Grill and Slamming Sliders are among the vendors who will be available to serve you.

Remember, this event is free to all who attend. It is proudly sponsored by the City of San Gabriel and the San Gabriel Women’s Foundation. For more info on the tree lighting, visit the City of San Gabriel’s website:
