Nights of Lights 2023


Tree Lighting – November 24

The holiday tree lighting ceremony is a fun and festive way to kick off the holiday season. It’s a time when our Coastside community comes together to celebrate the joy and spirit of the season. At the ceremony, our biggest tree yet will be lit up with twinkling lights. Kids are invited to bring handmade ornaments to hang on the tree. It’s a wonderful tradition that puts a smile on people’s faces and gets everyone in the holiday spirit! The Tree Lighting is sponsored by McDonald’s HMB!
