Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration

The City of Lone Tree is kicking off the holiday season with the lighting of the tree at the Lone Tree Arts Center. Come enjoy a hot cocoa and s’more bar, holiday tunes from On The Rocks, roaming holiday characters and remarks from City Council. You can also visit with the Big Guy himself and his reindeer. 

The holiday festivities continue with our friends across the street at the Lone Tree Library and MorningStar Senior Living.  Enjoy story time, crafts, candy canes, and card making at the library.  Get a little Grinchy with the MorningStar residents while  decorating cookies, crafting and getting pics in the photo booth.  Feel like giving back? Bring a gift to donate to the Grinch Gives Back program at MorningStar, benefiting residents in the facility. 

The tree lighting will take place at 6:30pm. Story times will be at 7pm, 7:15pm, and 7:30pm.
