Friday, Nov. 27th 5pm to 7:30pm Winter Lights– Annual Downtown SR Tree Lighting Celebration
Welcome the holidays with this all-ages event designed to bring together community to celebrate the holidays and remember our loved ones.
At 5pm, Santa Claus arrives on a fire truck. There will be photos with the jolly elf, music by The Zins, and performances by Sebastopol Ballet and the 6th Street Playhouse.
Just before 7:30pm, anyone who’s interested can light a candle for all who are no longer here to enjoy the holidays. A highlight of the city’s WinterLights celebration is this passing of a flame from candle to candle in a simple, solemn act of remembrance.
Right at the end (about 7:30pm), a switch will be flipped and one of the towering trees will light up!
Several food trucks will be on hand, and there will be plentiful hot cocoa, cider, beer and wine.
