The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department is set to host the 33rd annual Downtown Tree Lighting Ceremony. Discover the magic of Christmas in Aiken as Mayor Osbon counts down to the lighting of the tree. This free event will take place on Newberry Street in Historic Downtown Aiken. We will kick-off the holiday season with a live musical performance, a special hello from Santa, and a countdown to the lighting of the singing Christmas tree. Refreshments will be available for purchase. Parents, be sure to grab a take-home craft kit for your children. Event details are subject to change.
