Tree Lighting

Ring in the holiday season with this annual tradition in Downtown State College.  Every year the community gathers to sing carols, enjoy cookies and treats, and welcome Santa.  Donations are collected for the State College Area Food Bank and Toys for Tots, and one lucky donor is chosen to help Santa light up the tree!  Musical performances by local musicians and a variety of community groups keep the celebration going as children get their first opportunity of the season to talk with Santa.  It’s the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit.
