Celebrate the Season

Get ready to turn on the lights in The American Dream City! Arlington's annual Celebrate the Season is Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 6 p.m.

The fun all starts hours before the parade at 2 p.m., with live entertainment, food, and vendors in Downtown. Then the parade begins at 6 at the corner of S Center St. and E Main St. and ends at the corner of E Abram St. and S East St.

This year's Holiday Lights Parade entertainment line up includes Hannah Kirby from season 8 of NBC's The Voice.

The tree lighting, at 7:15 in front of City Hall, follows the parade. Mayor Jeff Williams, along with Santa Claus, has flip-the-switch honors to light the 57-foot blue spruce. Pictures with Santa will also follow from 7:15 to 8 at the Levitt Pavilion.

For the second straight year, the parade will make use of the Levitt Pavilion's video screen. Immediately after the parade, at 7:15, the movie Elf starring Will Ferrell will be shown on the lawn.

Residents and visitors can find more information about the parade, including a complete list of activities and sponsors, at www.holidaylightsparade.com.
