Palm Coast, FL – The holiday season is just around the corner, and we’re thrilled to invite the community to the 12th Annual City of Palm Coast Tree Lighting Ceremony. This festive event will take place on November 25th at the picturesque Central Park in Town Center, 975 Central Ave., Palm Coast, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Join us for a festive evening filled with joy and celebration as we usher in the most wonderful time of the year. Santa Claus, the Palm Coast City Council, and the Rotary Club of Flagler County will come together to count down to the lighting of a magnificent tree, creating a heartwarming spectacle that is not to be missed.

Santa Claus will arrive in style on a Palm Coast Fire Engine and, after the tree lighting, will be available for photos with attendees of all ages. Parents are encouraged to bring their cameras to capture the memories.

This year, we’re also thrilled to introduce a new holiday display, a collaboration between the City of Palm Coast Communications and Marketing Department and the Public Works Department, promising to enhance the holiday season for all. Children can enjoy fun and festive crafts at the City of Palm Coast Parks and Recreation booth, creating a memorable family experience.

This event will also mark the opening night of the Rotary Club’s 18th Annual Fantasy Lights Festival. The enchanting spectacle of 50 animated light displays around Central Park Lake will continue to illuminate the night from 6:30 to 9 p.m. daily through December 30. Admission to Fantasy Lights is free, and donations to support Rotary’s service work are gladly accepted.

“The Tree Lighting Ceremony is a cherished tradition in Palm Coast, and we’re excited to bring it back for the 12th year,” said Palm Coast City Manager Denise Bevan. “I encourage everyone to come out, celebrate the beginning of the holiday season, and create cherished memories with family and friends. We look forward to seeing you there!”

Save the date for this heartwarming community event, and get ready to kick off the holiday season with us at the 12th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony!
