Jack London Square will celebrate the start of the holiday season with the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, November 30 from 5–9 p.m. Oakland’s favorite annual holiday tradition promises to deliver holiday magic to the Oakland waterfront with the lighting of the spectacular 55-foot Mount Shasta Fir Tree adorned with 5,000 sparking white lights and 600 colorful ornaments.
The festivities are open to the public and free to attend, with tasty drinks and holiday treats available for purchase. KTVU FOX 2 Anchor Gasia Mikaelian KTVU will, once again, serve as Master of Ceremonies throughout the evening and will lead the countdown to the lighting of the tree. In the spirit of the season, Jack London Square’s annual Tree Lighting Ceremony will host a donation drive to collect non-perishable foods, unwrapped toys, and gently worn coats for several nonprofit organizations, including the Oakland Fire Department, One Warm Coat, and more to be announced at a later date.
A celebration of the season and the community, Jack London Square’s Tree Lighting Ceremony will feature holiday performances by Kev Choice and Friends, local youth performers, and more.
