There is just something magical about lighting the Christmas tree for the first time and you can take part in that magic with the lighting of the city Christmas tree.

On Thursday, November 30th, you are invited to attend the official lighting of the city Christmas tree in front of the Civic Center in downtown Evansville. The nearly 30-foot-tall Nordic spruce was donated by Russel Roth. Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will flip the switch, illuminating the tree at approximately 5:15pm on the 30th.
