UPDATE: Santa is not letting Mother Nature get in his way. He is bringing the Home for the Holidays Tree Lighting event to Southlake on Sunday, November 23, 2014. We will have a great celebration complete with Elsa, Anna and Olaf in Frozenland, guaranteed snow, the snow hill, live entertainment and of course Santa who will help us turn on the holiday lights for the first time this season.
Santa has made the call though to keep the horses warm so they will be hanging out with his reindeer in his stables instead of offering carriage rides.
The Tree Lighting kicks-off the holiday season with hometown traditions and new, exciting activities for the family. Due to Saturday’s rain forecast, this year’s event will be held on Sunday, November 23rd from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Southlake Town Square.
All the fun and entertainment will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Family Park with entertainment, crafts, the 4-lane snow tubing hill, strolling characters and concessions. For all the Frozen fans out there, a “Frozen Wonderland” will also begin at 5:30 p.m. with snowman building with Olaf and photo opportunities with Elsa and Anna.
The fun continues as Santa Claus arrives to Southlake Town Hall for the Tree Lighting Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. After Mayor John Terrell welcomes in the holidays, Santa Claus will switch on the lights from the Town Hall balcony. Once Town Square is lit, Santa Claus will make his way to Santa’s Village located in Rustin Pavilion to listen to your wish lists and take free photos with your family.
The Southlake Community Band will provide holiday cheer throughout the evening.
