Tonight: Plaza Holiday Lighting Event

Our annual Plaza Holiday Lighting celebration is today! Festivities begin at 4:30 p.m., and we'll switch on the lights to officially kick off the holiday season at 6:15 p.m. As you take in the sights, please join us in a big round of applause for our dedicated Parks crew for all their hard work preparing the decorations! They've spent the last month hanging over 30,000 LED lights to get the Plaza ready for holiday magic. Kudos, team!
