23204 58th Ave W

Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043

Contact:
(425) 776-9173
https://www.cityofmlt.com/602/Tree-Lighting-Ceremony

What:

The City of Mountlake Terrace has its Tree Lighting Ceremony event on the first Friday evening in December each year. Pour a cup of coffee, cocoa or tea and join the city for our second virtual (TBD) Tree Lighting Ceremony and 34th year of lighting the tree of lights on top of the water tower at 6:30 p.m. 

Last year, the city asked our community businesses and organizations to add a little cheer and make a virtual event possible with the hopes of holding it in the new Jerry Smith/Town Center Plaza, a component of the Civic Campus Revitalization Project.  Several partners stepped up and contributed so the city could create a new winter event in the Town Center with a tree for future gatherings.   Unfortunately, the plaza does not have full power yet and is not quite ready for the city to hold a virtual event there this year. 

Therefore, the city will continue the traditional lighting of the “tree” that is actually a frame constructed with over 1,800 LED lights and visible from Interstate 5 and for miles around. The event will include a glimpse of the new plaza, sponsor recognition, a visit from Santa, and the lighting of the tree.
