Tree Lighting Ceremony at Great America's Holiday Event

Tree Lighting Ceremony

A cast of 20 singers and dancers will kick off WinterFest with the Tree Lighting Ceremony in Celebration Plaza every night. This song and dance spectacular surrounds the nightly lighting of the 65-foot-tall tree, one of the grandest in the Bay Area. When the time arrives, the performers cue the crowd to count down the moment to light the giant wonder filled with thousands of lights and decorations. When the countdown hits zero, Snoopy and his special guests insert a giant plug into an oversized power outlet and the Christmas tree comes alive. 

Guests will look on in amazement at the holiday surroundings before them, including the North Pole (Star Tower), Santa and his sleigh atop Gold Striker’s tunnel, and the lights of Celebration Swings. Plus, have fun taking a peek at the light show sparkling from Orleans Place.

Arrive early to WinterFest to catch the incredible grand opening.
