The annual Kansas City Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held on Friday, November 29, 2019 at Crown Center Square. Admission is FREE.
The 100-foot-tall Mayor’s Christmas Tree is one of the tallest in the United States, and is the centerpiece for this holiday celebration. This is Mayor Quinton Lucas’ first year to flip the switch and light the tree. He will be joined by a celebrity guest.
The Mayor’s Christmas tree is made up of:
- 48,000+ LED lights
- 892 ball ornaments
- 100 snowflakes
- 300 bells (new this year!)
Entertainment will be provided by the cast of “A Spectacular Christmas Show,” the annual production at MTH Theater at Crown Center and fireworks will conclude the program, immediately following the lighting of the tree.
The ceremony begins at 5:30 p.m.
The Mayor’s Christmas Tree will be on display through Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020. After the holidays, the wood from the Mayor’s Christmas Tree is made into commemorative ornaments, which are sold the following year to benefit the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund.
