Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will welcome the start of the holiday season with the lighting of the City of Evansville’s official Christmas tree on Thursday, November 30th at approximately 5:15pm.


The ceremony will take place in front of the Civic Center main entrance on Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.

Special thanks to Russell Roth for donating a Norway spruce approximately 30-feet tall for the ceremony, and to SKANSKA for donating a crew and equipment to transport the tree to the Civic Center. The tree is expected to arrive on Monday, November 27, weather permitting. The tree will be decorated with LED lights donated by Advance Network Services. Over 50 singers with the Reitz High School Choir, led by Choir Director Patrice Villines, will perform and Mayor Winnecke will start the countdown to turn on the Christmas tree lights. Everyone is welcome. The Christmas tree will remain on display until after January 1, 2018.
