Holiday Tree Lighting

Tree Lighting at 6:00 p.m. 

Join your fellow Los Gatos neighbors in kicking off the holiday season with the Annual Los Gatos Tree Lighting!

This free night of family fun will feature live music from Los Gatos school bands, choirs and local musicians along with appearances by the Los Gatos Town Council and other Town dignitaries. The historic fir tree planted in 1923 by the Los Gatos History Club comes to life when the Mayor flips the switch at 6:00 p.m. and the magnificent tree lights up. Just then Santa will arrive on a classic fire truck along with the Santa Clara County Fire Department and the Los Gatos Police Department. Free photos with Santa, live music, face painting and a balloon artist will follow until the event ends at 7:00 p.m.

The Annual Tree Lighting celebration is held at Los Gatos Town Plaza Park located in the heart of downtown Los Gatos at the corner of Main St. and Santa Cruz Ave.

We hope to see you there, and the next day at the 62nd Annual Children’s Holiday Parade in downtown Los Gatos!
