‘Tis the season to be merry! It’s time to kick off holiday festivities with our 7th Annual Tree Lighting Celebration, happening Friday, November 16 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

This year’s Tree Lighting, presented by Johnson Subaru of Cary, is jam-packed with holiday fun! Arrive early for dinner and socializing with family and friends, then make your way to The Park area for a special holiday concert from The Embers featuring Craig Woolard Music, kicking off at 6 p.m.

Mayor Harold Weinbrecht of Cary, NC will take the stage just before 7 p.m. to introduce Santa and count down to the tree lighting. Your little ones will want to secure their spot on the ‘nice list’ this year as Santa will be on-site throughout the evening to greet and take photos with the children. Parents and family are welcome to bring a camera and take photos of our special guest.

Guests can also expect:
