Fort Walton Beach’s downtown Christmas tree lighting event is this Friday

The City of Fort Walton Beach will hold their annual “Light Up The Night” Christmas tree celebration at The Landing Park in Downtown Fort Walton Beach on Friday, November 25, beginning at 5 p.m.

Local businesses will be open for food, beverages, and music, as the Fort Walton Beach Community Choir performs along with a visit from Santa.

Then, beginning at 5:30pm, Mayor Dick Rynearson is expected to lead the countdown as the 30-foot tall Christmas tree “lights up the night” along with other decorations in the downtown area.

“This is one of our favorite times of the year in the City,” said Jeff Peters, interim City Manager. “The Light up the Night Tree lighting event has grown over the past few years. It kicks the Holiday Season off in a great way and then we follow up with the Christmas Parade on December 5th.”
