Lakewood shines a bit brighter following the mayor’s tree lighting on Friday & Saturday, December 6 & 7 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Lakewood Heritage Center. The official lighting ceremony begins at 5:45 p.m. on Friday. Both evenings offer FREE museum tours, FREE tractor pulled hay-wagon rides, FREE photos with Santa, with hot cocoa and holiday cookies for purchase.
Listen to timeless holiday tunes each night. Spin the dreidel to get coin-shaped chocolate gelt or snap a photo with jolly old Santa to commemorate the season.
Fifteen historic buildings will be decorated for the occasion, eight of which will be open to the public and feature holiday activities.
An evening at Lakewood Lights includes free photos with Santa, hay wagon rides pulled by a vintage tractor, holiday crafts, dreidel and gelt, and merry live entertainment.
Vote on your favorite festive lamp post decorated by local groups and organizations in our community. Warm up with hot cocoa and cookies available for free (with a suggested $1 donation) at the 1940s diner, or treat yourself to roasted chestnuts in the 1930s farmhouse.
Then, then stop by the visitor center to shop for unique and retro holiday gifts in the 20th Century Emporium.
