For those who are traveling this holiday season and will be out of town for the event, you can still catch the tree lighting ceremony on TV, as KFVS12 will be on site broadcasting live!

Jackson, MO 63755, USA

Join us in the Jackson City Park for fun family activities as we “flip the switch” and turn on this year’s beautiful holiday light displays on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Horse drawn wagon rides, games, crafts, letters to Santa, and holiday music will take place near the pavilion beginning at 4:30 p.m. The lighting ceremony begins at 5:00 p.m. near the footbridge over Hubble Creek. What color do you think the bridge will be this year? Around 5:45 p.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive and kids will get a chance to visit with them. All the activities are free, but bring some cash for refreshments from the food trucks parked near the tennis courts. This year we are collecting items at the Giving Tree For two charities: Jackson Ministerial Alliance Food Pantry and Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary. Bring non-perishable food items and dog/cat food to help make a difference for others. This is an outdoor event that will take place unless there are severe weather warnings, so dress appropriately. All of Parkview Street will be blocked off for the festivities so allow yourself plenty of time to park your vehicle. Come make some memories with us as we kick off the holiday season!
