The Edgewater is thrilled to welcome guests back for the 7th Annual Tree Lighting on Friday, November 26, 2021. The holiday event is free and open to the public and features events throughout the day starting at 2pm. Meet Bucky Badger, Mickey and Minnie, and Frosty and Friends as they help us open The Edgewater Grand Plaza and Icehouse for the winter. Stop by The Edgewater for a full day of outdoor fun and festivities, culminating in our annual Tree Lighting ceremony, complete with Santa and bagpipes.
The afternoon includes an outdoor screening of Mickey’s Christmas Carol, Frosty’s Winter Wonderland and ’Twas the Night Before Christmas, as well as two live ballet performances. The a capella group greenTONES will wow you with Christmas standards old and new, but the spectacular show starts when Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive for a group rendition of Jingle Bells.
