Lord Mayor’s Lighting of the Christmas Tree | Brisbane | 1 December, 2020
1 December, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm
It’s one of Brisbane’s most favourite traditions. Heading to King George Square to watch the lighting of the HUGE Christmas tree squeezed in with hundreds of other Brisbanites. 2020 will need to look different due to COVID but the good news is we’re not going to miss out on watching the tree come to life marking the start of the festive season!
This year, Brisbane households can join in the Lighting of the Brisbane Christmas Tree live-streamed via the Brisbane City Facebook page at 6:30pm on Tuesday 1 December. Hosted by Brisbane’s singing sweetheart Naomi Price, Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner will turn on the 22m-high Christmas tree’s twinkling lights accompanied by two special Christmas musical performances to get you in the festive mood.
You can also join the festivities by flicking the lights on your own trees at home at the same time. Share your Christmas tree moment via social media using the hashtag #merrybrismas to go into the draw to win a $1,000 Christmas shopping spree in The City.
The Brisbane Christmas Tree will be on display from 1–30 December in King George Square, from 6:30pm for festive selfies.
