  • Tree Lighting Ceremony: Hosted by NBC4’s Shawn Yancy, City Ridge’s tree lighting ceremony will kick off at 7pm, featuring a performance and sing-along with a local choir.
  • Festive, Kid-Friendly Activities: Throughout the evening, families are invited to join all kinds of fun activities across the property, including face painting, crafts, train rides, opportunities to write letters to and take photos with Santa, and watch live performances from carolers, choirs and more.
  • Goodies & Giveaways: Warm up with delicious bites from King Street Oyster Bar before they open their permanent doors at City Ridge! At the Sweets Shoppe, guests can also select from a variety of seasonal treats including a  cup of hot chocolate from Tatte Bakery & Cafe or decorate cookies with Wegmans.
