Little Italy Tree Lighting & Christmas Village Is Celebrating Its 20th Anniversary
Little Italy is inviting all to the neighborhood for an evening filled with Christmas cheer and holiday décor! This year’s festivities include two Christmas trees, 10’ nutcrackers on street corners, a Christmas Village with seasonal vendors selling the perfect locally-made gifts, live music and entertainment, horse carriage rides, Christmas carolers, holiday treats, a tree lighting, a visit from Santa…and more!
Not One But Two Christmas Trees!
A 25-foot tower of more than 1,100 beautiful Poinsettias will be located in the center of Piazza Basilone and a permanent 20-foot tall live tree in the Piazza della Famiglia.
The community is invited to head to the Piazza della Famiglia to light the tree at 6:30 p.m. The Poinsettia tree at the Piazza Basilone will be lit-up the whole evening—sparkling like the Eiffel Tower.
Santa Is Coming To Town
You better not pout, you better not cry. Santa will make a visit from the North Pole to take photos with little ones starting at 4 p.m. Kids can stop by “Santa’s Living Room” on India Street to share their Christmas wishes with Santa until 6 p.m. They will also be able to participate in fun arts and crafts right next to “Santa’s Living Room.”
Stroll Around The Christmas Village
The community can stroll through the Christmas Village, located on India Street between W. Cedar and W. Grape Streets, to pick-up stocking stuffers and other holiday goodies from seasonal vendors. Christmas carolers will be singing throughout the event and a stage will host live entertainment and kid performances!
We love Little Italy during the holidays (and anytime for that matter!)!
See you there!
