Annual Christmas Tree Lighting

There's no better way to get in the holiday spirit than by joining the City of Allen for the grand lighting of its 35-foot Christmas tree, featuring more than 20,000 lights!

All ages are welcome to attend this family-friendly community event, which includes surprises, live entertainment and a visit from Santa and his elves at Allen Civic Plaza. 

Check out the video of a previous Christmas Tree Lighting to see what you can expect.

The 2016 event is from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on December 2 at 301 Century Parkway.
