Light up the dark winter with illumination and holiday tree lighting events around Richmond to usher in the festivities of the season. Tree lighting events are a festive way to bring community together. Families build traditions around annual tree lightings, and they are especially fun for children who expect them. It is so fun to gather with friends, neighbors outdoors, and celebrate the beginning of a season that unifies all of us. Not to mention, these events are typically free, safe and fun for the entire family. Keep checking back as more events are announced.
