The City of Cañon City’s 2022 Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held on First Friday this year at Macon Plaza.

Mayor Ashley Smith will be turning on the Christmas Tree lights at 6:00 p.m. followed by a performance by the Cañon City High School Madrigal Singers. We will be providing complimentary hot chocolate and s’mores. In addition, there will be food for purchase by From the Flames Wood Fired Pizza. Once again, we will have our famous snowball fight area set up with our fake plush snowballs! Voting for the Main Street “A Very Victorian Window Decorating Contest” also begins on First Friday.

The celebration continues on Saturday, December 3rd with the Royal Gorge Chamber Alliance’s 33rd Annual Christmas Parade of Lights taking place down 5th to 10th Streets of Historic Main Street starting at 6:00 p.m. This year’s theme is “A Very Victorian Christmas.” Come early to enjoy the Main Street window decorating contest, merchant specials, and food trucks.
