It is officially time to start letting the Holiday spirit in! Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will mark the start of the holidays by lighting the City of Evansville’s official Christmas tree in front of the Civic Center Complex on Thursday, November 19 at 5 p.m.
The public is welcome to attend the event as it is an annual tradition. The Mayor says it is something we can still enjoy in a press release.
“In light of all the pandemic-related postponements, this is one tradition our community can still enjoy,” said Mayor Lloyd Winnecke. “Wearing our masks and distancing ourselves from others, we can safely welcome the holiday season.”
Before the tree lighting, you can enjoy the sounds of the Signature School Choir, led by Henry Maurer. Not only that, but the Downtown Economic Improvement District, responsible for the new Evansville Christkindlmarkt, will have a few surprises in store for attendees.
The tree will be decorated with approximately 25,000 lights by the hands of the Traffic Engineering Department. The treetop will be illuminated with Evansville’s ‘e’ for Everyone campaign logo.
