Light Up Downtown Boca, a series of winter holiday festivities including parades, concerts and more, kicks off on Wednesday, November 25 at Mizner Park Amphitheater from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. with a FREE Holiday Festival culminating in the city’s and Mizner Park’s annual tree lighting ceremony.
The event will include carnival rides, a mountain of snow, carolers, children’s crafts, and
live entertainment including “Let it Snow,” a stage show presented by ZMC
Entertainment. The highlight of the evening will be the ceremonial lighting of the city’s
tree led by Mayor Susan Haynie that will illuminate simultaneously with Mizner Park’s
47-foot animated tree at the south end of the center near Lord & Taylor.
Throughout Mizner Park, 50,000 LED lights will adorn 75 palm trees; poles will be laced with garland; lights and four wreaths (each 60” in diameter) will be placed throughout the center; garland will be swooped throughout the gazebos and the valet parking station – all of which will be decorated with lights and holiday trimmings.
Located at the south end of the center near Lord & Taylor, Mizner Park’s “iTree” consists of more than 32,000 life-like PVC branches, red & gold bows, ornament clusters and 25,000 clear & multi-colored LED lights. There will be 20 minute musical light shows performed nightly at 6 p.m., 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. starting on Wednesday, November 25 and continuing through the holiday season. The tree will be illuminated for photo opportunities between shows.
Attendees are encouraged to walk, bike, car pool and use free parking at City Hall, the
Boca Raton Library and Downtown Boca Library.
