The holiday fun and tree-mendous excitement begins with the lighting of our Famous 100-foot Christmas Tree at Old School Square. Kids can visit Santa, ride the holiday carousel, enjoy outdoor ice skating, listen to music, enjoy great food, and go inside the 100-foot Christmas Tree to see the animated elf scenes and more! The tree is illuminated through the beginning of the New Year.
