Houston is big on themed events, aren’t we? The holidays are no different! Ring in the centennial celebration of Houston’s tree lighting in the heart of downtown. The spectacular event is a holiday tradition of live entertainment, fireworks, Santa and more.

A towering 70-foot White Fir tree from Oregon will glow with energy efficient LED lights, shimmering ornaments and a stunning star topper to light up the streets of downtown Houston this holiday season. The Grammy-nominated duo Chloe x Halle will headline the event and other performers include Uche, Theater Under the Stars (TUTS) Elf The Musical, The Best Little Klezmer Band in Texas and more. The event takes place in Hermann Square at City Hall from 5 to 8 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
