Drive-In Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony

November 28, 2020, 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Burlington Riverfront Entertainment ( )
Burlington Riverfront

Fill a thermos with your favorite hot beverage and head to Memorial Auditorium parking lot to see the riverfront light up for the holidays!

Burlington Riverfront Entertainment is proud to announce the second annual Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony on the riverfront. The 25-foot real tree will come to life with over 5,000 individual lights, along with giant snowflakes along the riverfront, at 6 PM. There will be a special mailbox near the tree for kids' letters to Santa - all letters deposited by Dec. 15 will get a personal response! The box will also be used to collect votes for the Holiday Lights Trail; all ballots deposited in the special mailbox by Dec. 21 will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Visa gift card.

Attendees must remain in their vehicles during the ceremony; plan to arrive early as spots will be limited - you won't want to miss Santa coming to town in his horse-drawn carriage!

If you're unable to make it to the riverfront, you can also join the event virtually as Burlington Riverfront Entertainment goes live on Facebook.

Proud sponsors of the BRE Christmas on the Riverfront include: Drake Hardware & Software, The Hawk Eye, Menke & Company CPA, Casebine Community Credit Union, Tim Lundgren-Farm Bureau Financial Services, Farmers Savings Bank, Carlos Capdevila Agency Inc.– American Family Insurance, Standard of Beaverdale, Walker Outdoor Services, Fye Excavating Inc., Myers Tree Farm & Brockway Company.
