Tree Lighting Ceremony

The Town puts on a beautiful tree lighting ceremony around the first week of December to kick off the holiday season in Gila Bend. Santa arrives to help us light up the park and most of the trees in Community Center Park become a glowing spectacle of holiday spirit. Spectators can enjoy free hot chocolate and treats! The holiday lights continue in the park through the first week of January. 

This year, the tree lighting will be held on Monday, Dec. 9th, 2019 at 7:00 PM.
