Winter Lighting Ceremony

Join in the countdown with the crowd as the switch is flipped bringing over 200,000 mini-lights, over 230 streetlight snowflakes and the 30 foot tree to life. The ceremony also offers entertainment by local youth choirs and holiday treats.

The ceremony will include a special appearance by Mr. and Mrs. Claus as well as entertainment by the Burnsville High School Freestyle Singers and the Sioux Trail Elementary Choir. In addition, 360 Communities in Burnsville will be sponsoring a non-perishable food drive, and food shelf donations will be accepted the night of the event.

Free parking:
Available at the Heart of the City Park and Ride Ramp located one block north of Burnsville Parkway on Pillsbury Avenue and in the Heart of the City Parking Deck located north of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center.

    I though some were going into the Med Cruise for a early Happy Hour warmup? It just steps from the lighting?

      You suggested it and some people are willing to participate in happy hour, but since that was not part of what I organized I will not be getting involved in those details. If the people at the happy hour are meeting with the group I will be at the designated spot at 5:45pm. Anyone who doesn't plan to meet me should either let me know or un'rsvp so I am not waiting/looking for them.

      That sounds great! What time should we meet for happy hour? If the lighting ceremony starts at 6, should we try to meet around 4-ish? Or later?
