Tree Lighting Ceremony (Virtual Tree Lighting & Tour of Homes)

Tree Lighting Tree

In the interest of public health and to keep our focus on the safety and wellness of our community, the City of Chanhassen will not be holding an in-person Tree Lighting event this year. Instead, we are modifying the 2020 Tree Lighting into a community-wide Tour of Lights and kicking it off with a virtual tree lighting of the holiday tree in City Center Park Plaza! Details on our modified program can be found below:

Virtual Tree Lighting

What: To kick off the 2020 holiday season and the Tour of Lights, Mayor Elise Ryan will be "flipping the switch" to light City Center Park virtually. The illumination will be broadcast via Facebook Live and here. We invite you to join in the lighting ceremony by "flipping" your own switch at home and turning on your holiday lights with us at 5:00 p.m.

When: December 5 at 5:00 p.m.

Where to watch: See the link below or click here to view from the City of Chanhassen Facebook page

After the switch is flipped, hop in your vehicle and take a drive through the Chanhassen tour of Lights!

**Link will be posted here on Saturday, December 5.**

Chanhassen Tour of Lights
