Ninth Annual Holiday Tree Lighting

The CityCenterDC Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration will start the holiday season on Saturday, November 26 at 6 p.m. in The Park at CityCenter. People attending the event will witness a 75-foot tree, which is one of the biggest in the city. It has more than 150,000 lights and 4,500 ornaments on it.

The celebrations will be led by NBC 4 Anchor Eun Yang, and Elan Artists’ seven-piece dance band The Revels will give a special performance. As people look at the tree, they will be surrounded by face painting and balloon art, sweet and savory treats from CityCenterDC favorites, and a few surprises that will make everyone wish for a magical holiday with snow.
