- Things to Do
Start the holiday season with festive fun in Little Italy at the 21st Annual Little Italy Tree Lighting and Christmas Village.
Enjoy the reveal of a new custom Christmas tree, and experience a magical evening filled with festive decor, seasonal vendors, a tree lighting ceremony (at 6:30 p.m.) in the Piazza della Famiglia with a live Christmas tree over 25-feet tall, live music and entertainment, horse-drawn carriage rides, holiday treats, a surprise visit from Santa and more!
Santa will make an appearance to chat and take photos with children starting at 4 p.m. In “Santa’s Living Room” little ones can share their Christmas wishes until 6 p.m. and get their picture taken with the man from the North Pole. Kids can also participate in arts and crafts activities next to “Santa’s Living Room.” Stroll Christmas Village, which will feature holiday goodies and perfect stocking stuffers from seasonal vendors.
