Palo Alto is Lighting Up This Holiday Season - Virtual Tree Lighting on Friday at 6pm

Virtual Tree Lighting Ceremony - Friday, November 20 at 6pm

We continue to uplift the community through our traditional holiday tree lighting in Lytton Plaza. This year will be a virtual celebration to protect the health and safety of the community. Due to COVID-19 we will not be having a community eventhowever, we invite you and your family to enjoy the tree while remaining socially distanced starting on Friday, November 20th through December.

Tune in online for holiday comments from the Mayor and other community members, plus music from the Palo Alto Children’s Theatre. If you can’t make it virtually for the live show, revisit on Palo Alto’s Youtube channel afterwards.
