Tree Lighting Ceremony

Celebrate the beginning of the holiday season in Palm Coast at the Tree Lighting Ceremony!

Kick off the holiday season at the City of Palm Coast's annual Tree Lighting Ceremony – which is also the first night of Fantasy Lights around the lake – at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25, at Central Park in Town Center, 975 Central Ave., Palm Coast. The event is free. Join Santa Claus, the Palm Coast City Council, and the Rotary Club of Flagler County in the countdown to the lighting of a beautiful tree. Santa will arrive on a Palm Coast Fire Engine.

Children can visit Santa - parents should bring a camera for photos. Kids can do fun and festive crafts as well as write Letters to Santa at the Parks & Rec booth.

This will also be the opening night of the Rotary Club's 18th Annual Fantasy Lights Festival. The 55 animated light displays around Central Park Lake will continue from 6:30 to 9 p.m. nightly through Dec. 30. Admission to Fantasy Lights is free. Donations to support Rotary's service work are accepted.

Fantasy Lights is a self-guided walking tour that includes festive live and broadcast music, Santa's Village, and holiday refreshments available for purchase. Check for more details.
