At 6:30 pm Santa himself will wave the magic wand to light up the giant white spruce adorned with more than 14-thousand LED lights, cascading snowfalls, sparkles and stars. This beautiful tree was donated by Millar Western Forest Products, and installed and decorated by EPCOR. Following the tree lighting, the audience will be treated to a spectacular, choreographed fireworks show.
After The Holiday Light Up, the tree will illuminate Downtown nightly at dusk throughout the holiday season.
The Downtown Business Association thanks its partners Millar Western, EPCOR and The City of Edmonton for their generous and ongoing support of this great seasonal event.
