Holiday Tree Lighting

Friday, December 1, 2017

Visit Fremont Park for our annual Holiday Tree Lighting with Mayor Kirsten Keith, presented by the City of Menlo Park and the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce.

This holiday favorite event brings the Menlo Park community together to ring in the holiday season. Come enjoy live entertainment, free hot cocoa, and the lighting of the holiday tree. If you have been good boys and girls, Santa and his elves just might make a special appearance. The holiday tree lighting is a rain or shine event.

This year we are excited to welcome Jeremy Sutton, a digital artist, who uses his tablet and drawing software to paint events as they unfold. He will be capturing the magic of the tree lighting event, which will be displayed for all of us to enjoy in real time on a large projection screen.
