    Standing center stage in Old Sacramento, the 58-foot tall City of Sacramento Christmas tree will be lit during this visually-exciting official tree lighting ceremony that is free and open to the public.

    Following the tree lighting ceremony will be a “Theatre of Lights” performance, a special event that blends lights, sounds and visual effects that transport the audience back in time with a reading of the famous poem, "The Night Before Christmas" by Clement Clarke Moore. The narrated reading of the powerful and nostalgic poem is brought to life through theatrical elements and visually-exciting lighting choreography that takes place on the balconies and rooftops of Old Sacramento’s historic buildings located on K Street between Front and 2nd Streets.

    While you’re in Old Sacramento, be sure to visit the array of locally-owned businesses, shops and eateries...the experience makes for a perfect holiday tradition!
