You’re not going to want to miss out on this quintessentially Victorian holiday tradition!

One of the tallest Christmas trees in the region will be lit during a festive celebration happening this weekend at Uptown Shopping Centre on Saturday, November 19th.

Santa Claus will light up the 54-foot-tall following a family-friendly holiday show on Uptown Boulevard, and you’re invited to watch it happen.

We’ve also partnered with Uptown to give away an incredible prize package for the evening, including a private indoor viewing of the tree light-up, a $200 gift card to Browns Socialhouse, and $500 Uptown Shopping Centre gift card—you’ll find those contest details below!

Uptown’s official kickoff to the holidays will run from 5 p.m to 7:30 p.m., with the stage show taking place until around 7 p.m. before the magical tree light-up begins.

Families are welcome to arrive early to get a good spot by the stage, get a warm beverage or a snack, or even check out a firetruck up close—plus, there will be holiday characters on-site for a meet and greet!

There will also be stunning holiday vignettes to take your photo in front of to cap off the picture-perfect evening.
