Lakewood residents are cordially invited to join in the city’s 10th annual tree lighting ceremony and community gathering on Friday, Dec. 1 outside The Centre at 5000 Clark Ave., next to City Hall.

Carnival games and food trucks will be on the scene starting at 4:30 p.m. Santa will be ready to hear your children’s holiday wishes and take photos (with your own device) from 4:30 p.m. until 8 p.m.

The official tree lighting program starts at 6:30 p.m. Festivities wrap up at 8 p.m.

Fun features include:

  • Lots of falling snow
  • Holiday musical entertainment
  • Plenty of food trucks located in the parking lot behind City Hall where there is more room to spread out and relax.
  • Wonderful and free family holiday photo opportunities. Costumed characters will help with several holiday photo scenes, including one with Santa and two large sleighs. 

Where to park

Parking will be available behind The Centre and in the large, gravel parking lot at the corner of Del Amo Boulevard and Clark Avenue. The parking lots immediately in front of and behind City Hall will be closed for use in the event.
