Holiday Tree Lighting Event
Central Park, 969 Kiely Blvd.
Friday, Dec. 7, 2018
5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Join us for open ice skating sessions and community performances by Buscher Middle School, the Santa Clara Vanguard, Roberta Jones Jr. Theatre and Joy of Sewa. Santa arrives from the North Pole around 5:30 p.m. with a procession of Parks and Recreation dancers.
The first 500 youth who meet Santa will get a teddy bear reminiscent of “Teddy”, the Santa Clara holiday tree topper. “Teddy” has been a Santa Clara tradition since 1911 when the City of Santa Clara Electric Department placed the bear at the top of the holiday tree. This year, Teddy will make its 107th appearance atop the lights of the holiday tree. Our youth and the young at heart can create whimsical crafts in Santa’s Workshop or purchase a tasty treat from the community food booths.
The festivities lead up to the magical lighting of the tree at 7 p.m. Experience wonderment as you watch the 70-foot tree light up the night followed by a spirited, winter fireworks show! Following the fireworks will be music from Bay Area headliner, Entourage.
