Sunday’s Beacon Hill Community Tree Lighting

We think Sunday’s event will be the perfect thing to help folks bring on holiday spirit! Take a walk before dinner over to the  junction of Beacon Ave S and 15th Ave S. for fabulous outdoor amusements and to celebrate the season of lights: You’ll get to be part of the inaugural tree lighting of the tall pine tree adjacent to the Shell Gas Station as a community-wide effort to revitalize this key area of our neighborhood.

  • Scavenger Hunt: Use your ‘passport’ in the program to locate and document your visit to the many participating businesses who will display colorful Parol Lanterns outside their door to welcome carolers and the public for free holiday treats and a spot to warm up.
  • Santa Visits Beacon Hill: Santa will arrive to light the tree and kick off the event at 5:30pm then hold court for the kiddos in Inay’s Restaurant.
