More than a tree lighting ceremony, this event includes fun and entertainment for the entire family! Come to Wholand in Loveland. Children and families can get photos with Santa and Dr. Seuss characters, face painting, horse-drawn carriage rides, and live entertainment – all free and open to the public. Hot drinks and treats will be available for a fee. Loveland Mayor and City Manager will countdown the lighting of the tree. After the ceremony, head to downtown Loveland for great local deals from participating restaurants and retailers then over to the Rialto for the fun movie “The Santa Clause”.
