Christmas Tree Lighting Festival
The event is designed to become part of the community’s traditional celebration of the holidays which begins with Breakfast with Santa at Red Bridge Park. The festivities continue throughout the day with the Christmas Market Place at the library and the Christmas Parade, and culminates with the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Festival which will be held at the Pocket Park and on Jackson Street that same day. From 4:30-6:30 several free events will be featured. Games with prizes will be located at four businesses on Jackson Street and at the Cicero Town Hall. Families are invited to visit Old Saint Nick at Santa Land located in the Pocket Park adjacent to Town Hall. Parents are welcome to take photos of their children with Santa free of charge, and kids will be leaving with a treat in hand. But the highpoint of the day, the 2nd Annual Christmas Tree Lighting will occur at 6:45pm. A huge tree, donated by Cicero residents, Dave and Becky Benefiel, will be positioned in the Pocket Park and illuminated with pomp and circumstance by three of the area’s kids.
