Join us as we welcome the holidays with festivities, delicious food, musical performances, crafts, and many more holiday surprises. So make sure to join us on Nov. 30th, from 6 pm to 9 pm, for the 100 Foot Christmas Tree lighting, a beloved Delray Beach tradition dating back to 1993. Since then, it has become one of the largest and most celebrated holiday events in Palm Beach County. So gather your family and friends and see why it was named "Best Tree in the State of Florida" by Travel + Leisure. But the fun doesn't end there. The city will also be hosting other holiday events for all to enjoy.
