Annual Tree Lighting and Holiday Market
Enjoy winter magic in Veterans Memorial Park at our annual holiday festivities! We’ll have children’s activities, a holiday market, music, and visits from Santa Claus himself on both Friday and Saturday night.
This event will also feature the opening of an ice-skating rink with real ice that will be available from Dec. 2 through Jan. 2! Skating will be available in 1-hour blocks for $10 per person (ice skate rental included). Stay tuned for more news and information on how to reserve time in advance.
On Friday, the Sierra Vista Community Band will perform at 5:00 p.m. and the Tree Lighting Ceremony will take place at 5:30 p.m. Santa will arrive after the ceremony to meet local children and take their letters, while the holiday market and children’s activities will remain open throughout the event.
On Saturday, the Desert Swing Band will perform a Christmas Concert at noon, with shopping available all day. Then the park entrances and exits will close from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. for the Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas Light Parade. Once the parade ends, the shopping and children’s activities continue until 9:00 p.m.
