The Church Street Lighting Festival In Vermont Will Transport You To A Winter Wonderland
The holidays are full of wonderful traditions, especially in Vermont! There’s one particular tradition in Burlington that draws people from all over the state. If it’s not on your holiday wish list, you might just want to add it and mark it on your calendar.
The Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony and Show takes place on Friday, November 29th in Burlington.
The festival happens every year and takes place on Church Street in Burlington.
The festivities first kick off with the Santa Parade at noon.
Santa and other characters will be marching down the streets to bring holiday cheer.
Santa just might bring one of his helpers too.
Reindeer will be there to pet and miniature horse rides are offered for the children.
At 5:30 pm, the Christmas show begins.
"The Night Before Christmas," will be performed by Bag O' Chips Productions as it leads up to the lighting ceremony. However, the party will still be going on before the show starts! Throughout Church Street Marketplace, carolers will be walking around singing your favorite holiday tunes.
As part of the tradition, one lucky kid gets to turn the lights on.
And all of the trees come to life with beautiful lights.
Over 100,000 lights are illuminated during the ceremony.
And of course, the giant Christmas Tree gets lit as well.
For a truly magical holiday experience, make the trip to Burlington.
