Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer invites Central Florida residents and visitors to ring in the holiday season at the City of Orlando’s annual Tree Lighting Celebration.
The City of Orlando will host their annual Tree Lighting Celebration for the first official lighting of the 64-foot tree on Friday, December 3, 2021 starting at 8:00 p.m.
The highlight of the event is the lighting of the Christmas tree adorned with 2,000 ornaments and 200 pounds in lights that will musically sync with the lights at the Lake Eola fountain and provide precise animation during the shows. The event also includes holiday performances at the Walt Disney Amphitheater, food trucks and a holiday market, and an opportunity to meet Santa from 6 p.m. to 8p.m. at a vendor tent off North Rosalind Avenue.
Attendees unable to make it to the tree lighting event, can catch the synchronized light and music Christmas Tree Show every evening through January 6. The show will run each hour from 5:45 p.m. - 9:45 p.m.
