Lakewood Tree Lighting

DATES: Friday, December 3, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm

DECEMBER 3, 2021

Join in the city’s 8th annual tree lighting ceremony and community gathering on Friday, December 3rd 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
  • Mayfair High School Choral Group
  • 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.

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.

There will be plenty of other opportunities to enjoy good cheer around the Lakewood tree if you can’t make the tree lighting on December 3. From December 4 through December 31, the tree will be on display in the plaza, providing an animated light show that changes colors to music continuously from 5- 10 p.m. each night. Stop by and enjoy the splendor of the winter holidays!

If it is raining the late afternoon of December 3, the event will be cancelled, but the tree will still be lit for the first time at 6:30 p.m. that evening. If the rain stops by 1 p.m., the event will go on, although some activities may be limited.
