The Greene | Tree Lighting and Santa Arrival Parade {November 19}

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays and I love Christmas Trees. I am so excited that the Greene is kicking off the holiday season with the Lighting of their Christmas Tree and Parade this Saturday. I took my boys last year and they loved it! It is a very popular event, so you may want to get their early to find parking!

Since you are coming early, then you can start your Christmas shopping! Several stores will be offering Special discounts and promotions throughout the day. Also, Von Maur will be offering Free Family 5 x 7 Photos in their store.  You can stop in from 12pm-4pm.

The first 1000 shoppers that bring $100 in receipts to the Reward Center (118 Plum St) will receive $25 Greene Gift Card. The redemption center will open at 8:30am. Limit 1 and a Photo Id will be required for redemption. Only one restaurant receipt will be accepted and Rave Cinemas receipts will be excluded.

Santa's arrival parade and the lighting of the Christmas Tree will kickoff at 5pm with a performance by the Beavercreek High School Marching Band.  At 5:45 pm, Muse Machine will perform and give you a sneak peak at the Wizard of Oz.  At 6:15, watch Santa's arrival and holiday parade as they make their way to light the Christmas tree!

Check out the the following festivities going on throughout the day:

  • Storytime with Mrs. Claus in North Pole Village
  • Live Reindeer Display 12 pm – 10 pm
  • Santa Parade 6:45 pm
  • Carriage Rides
  • Live Nativity Scene 7 pm – 10 pm
  • Wax Hands
  • Live Music by the Ugly Sweaters
  • Strolling Performers

Tip: Last year, I took my boys to see Santa last year for this event and we were able to use our own camera to take a picture.  We visited Santa before we left and there was not a line.

Is this event an annual family tradition?  What do you like to do to celebrate the Christmas Season?
