Tree Lighting Parade & Ceremony

Christmas TreeBusiness Improvement District, In partnership with the City of Middletown, has created a standing tradition with Middletown's Annual Tree Lighting Parade and Ceremony the day after Thanksgiving. Starting on North Street, the parade heads to West Main Street and draws to a conclusion at Festival Square for a ceremony involving a special appearance from Santa to assist in lighting the tree.

This year's festivities will take place Friday, November 24th, 2023. Live Entertainment will take place at Festival Square on West Main Street.

Plus The Middletown Recreation and Parks Department will have their Letter's To the North Pole Mailboxes in place at Festival Square! Be sure to bring your letter to Santa with you and drop it in one of the "Merry Mailboxes" (Don't forget a self-addressed envelope with postage enclosed with your letter to ensure safe delivery back.)

It's going to be a great night in Downtown Middletown so be sure to come out and join us!
