Event: The Domain’s Lighting of the Great Tree

The holidays come but once a year, so let’s get together to spread some cheer as The Domain hosts its 8th Annual Lighting of The Great Tree on Sunday, November 23, 2014!


The Domain’s Lighting of The Great Tree is a day packed with free holiday entertainment beginning at noon on the new lawn area in The Domain II Plaza. Family-friendly activities will include children’s holiday music, face painting, caricature drawings, balloon twisting and holiday crafts. Many stores will also offer special in-store events and discounts throughout the day.

The 40-foot tree, located in front of Macy’s in Domain I, will light up the shopping center during the annual tree-lighting show at 6 p.m. The holiday event will feature a dynamic performance by ACM singer and songwriter, Sunny Sweeney, and Outside Voices, a local children’s choir. The evening will culminate with an onstage greeting from Santa, the lighting of the tree, and a fireworks show.

Following the tree lighting, local musical artists will perform on the stage near Starbucks. Strolling carolers and larger-than-life stilt walking toy soldiers will change the sights and sounds of The Domain and spread holiday cheer around the center. Attendees are also invited to enjoy marshmallow roasting in The Park.

The Domain Lighting of The Great Tree is free and open to the public.
