Shaw residents can start basking in the glow of a giant, twinkling tree in just nine days.
The third annual Shaw Holiday Tree Lighting is scheduled to occur at City Market at O (800 P St. NW) on Saturday, Nov. 26, according to the event’s organizers.
The tree-lighting ceremony will include live music, “electric train rides,” a moon bounce, ice sculpting and face painting. Then, at 5 p.m. sharp, local officials and business community representatives will light up the huge holiday display.
Next week’s festival isn’t the only upcoming tree-lighting ceremony. The Columbia Heights Initiative will hold its annual event on Dec. 3:
The 6th annual Columbia Heights Tree Lighting Ceremony is on Saturday December 3rd! You don't wanna miss this great night!
