Syracuse Tree Lighting
November 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Syracuse will return with an in-person “Home for the Holidays” tree lighting the day after Thanksgiving in Clinton Square. The 42-foot tall tree will be a focal point in downtown for the holiday season. Additionally, Cumulus Media will produce and promote a digital production of the tree lighting available beginning Wednesday, Dec. 8, at SyracuseTreeLighting.com for residents to enjoy from the comfort and safety of their own home. A ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m. Brownskin Band, a local R&B/Soul group, will provide musical entertainment throughout the program. Mayor Ben Walsh and Deputy Mayor Sharon Owens will be joined on stage by the three winners of the “Holidays Around the World” Art Competition at 7 p.m. to light the Christmas tree. The ceremony is expected to conclude by 7:15 p.m. Accessible seating will be located near the corner of West Water and South Salina Street. Street parking will be available and free that evening, but not several sounding streets will be closed to traffic.
