November 26-December 5: the Lighting of the Tree will take place at 6:00pm on 10 consecutive nights, spreading out the opportunities for Missoula-area families to see the Tree Lighting in small groups. And you may notice some other new additions to the holiday scene in Downtown. Ninety new strands of lights and garland were purchased last year and placed throughout Downtown alongside the decorations that adorn the top of the light poles. Downtown has come alive with the holiday spirit through thousands of lights! Instead of a large gathering for a single event, this year’s Lighting of the Tree will take place every night at 6 pm from November 26 through December 5. The Downtown Holiday Tree has new Christmas lights and a brand-new 5-foot star topper, thanks to the Missoula Downtown Foundation and Washington Companies. The Downtown Holiday Tree is located on North Higgins next to the Red XXXXs.
