Event Description

New Haven Tree Lighting Celebration.
Thursday, December 2 (rain date: Friday, December 3)
4-8pm

Downtown comes alive with cheer Thursday, December 2 as the lighting of the tree kicks off the holiday season in New Haven. The evening celebration brings hundreds of families together in the heart of the City on its historic Green and is free of charge. The event hosted by WTNH/My TV9’s Gil Simmons will feature live choral performances by the New Haven Chorale, Katherine Brennan School, Mauro/Sheridan School, Nathan Hale School and Bishop Woods School choirs. Special guest appearances by Santa, Ronald McDonald and others.

From 4-8pm, children have their choice of free rides- a carousel, “Lucy” the Polar Bear and “Storm the Reindeer” both life-sized mechanical animals. Meanwhile, guests can hop on a hayride around the Green – also free of charge. After the lighting of the tree, children and their families can visit and take a photograph with Santa until 7:30pm or in the midst of a “winter wonderland”.

Carousel and other amusements available on the Green thru Saturday, December 4. Hours: 4-8pm Friday; 12-4pm Saturday.
