The Domain kicks off the Holiday season on November 22, 2014 with the popular annual event, The Lighting of the Great Tree!
It’s become an Austin tradition to kick off the holiday season at The Domain’s popular family-friendly event, The Lighting of the Great Tree. Saturday, November 22, 2014 will be a day full of fun for kids and adults with FREE activities all day long to get you in the holiday spirit, culminating with the lighting of the 40-foot tree and a fireworks show. The tree, with over 6,000 twinkling lights and 400 many-colored ornaments, is sure to make your eyes sparkle! The event is FREE and open to the public. The Domain is located at 11410 Century Oaks Terrace, Austin.
Beginning at noon, revelers can enjoy:
- Face Painting
- Caricature drawings
- Balloon twisting
- Holiday crafts
Headlining the event, Sunny Sweeney will perform favorite holiday hits in addition to a few of her most popular songs before lighting the tree. Her debut album, “Heartbreakers Hall of Fame”, produced a trio of regional hits and allowed her to begin touring outside of Texas, throughout the United States and Europe. In June of 2010, the lead-off to her second album, “From a Table Away, ” became a Top 10 hit. Sweeney released her latest album “Provoked” this August.
The holiday celebration will once again feature a special performance by Outside Voices, a vocal performance group comprised of Austin-area youth ranging in age from K-12th grades. Many stores will also offer special in-store events and discounts throughout the day.
Following the tree lighting, local musical artists will perform on the stage near Starbucks with strolling carolers and larger-than-life stilt walking toy soldiers spreading cheer throughout the center. Don’t miss this much-loved Austin tradition!
