Battle Ground's Annual Tree Lighting Kicks off the Holiday Season on Friday, December 6 (Photo) - 11/06/19

Kick off the holiday season at Battle Ground’s Annual Holiday Tree Lighting on Friday, December 6 at the Battle Ground Community Center located at 912 East Main Street in Battle Ground’s historic Old Town District.     

The free event begins outside around the tree at 5:30 p.m. with caroling and live music by the Battle Ground High School Jazz Choir.  At 5:45 p.m., Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive by Fire District 3 Engine to lead the lighting of the tree. 

From 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. the celebration moves indoor to the warmth of the Community Center where Santa and Mrs. Claus will greet children, young and old.  Professional photos of your family with Santa are available and free to everyone, thanks to the kind support of Academy Mortgage.

The holiday celebration includes festive treats, of course – free hot cocoa, generously gifted by Dutch Bros Coffee Battle Ground, and holiday cookies.

Battle Ground’s Holiday Tree Lighting & Celebration provides a wonderful opportunity for families and neighbors to gather as a community and celebrate the joys of the holiday season.   Join us!
