About the Event: 

The Town of Paradise presents the 6th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.

This family-oriented event will include live entertainment, cookies and hot apple cider, words from our Mayor, Steve “Woody” Culleton and a visit from Santa Claus! Bring your cameras! Of course, we will light up our Christmas Tree to begin the holiday season!

The Town of Paradise has coordinated this year’s event with the Chamber of Commerce who will be announcing their 12 Days of Christmas Ridgefest $1,000 Give-Away Raffle Winners!

Following the lighting ceremony events, the Christmas Truck Parade of Lights will begin! The Truck Parade is organized each year by the Pair-O-Dice Chapter of E. Clampus Vitus, in cooperation with Rick McGregor of McGregor Construction. The breath-taking parade of lighted trucks begin at Ace Hardware parking lot. They will stage the trucks between 4 and 6:00PM, where the Paradise Chamber of Commerce will judge the trucks’ decorative lights and will give out the awards! The Truck Parade of Lights will then take a pass by the Paradise Community Park on Pearson Road towards Skyway, at approximately 6:30pm, where they will proceed up Skyway to the Holiday Shopping Center, turn around and come back down Skyway, turning onto Pearson and back to Ace Hardware. The big-hearted truckers have a parade every year to ask for canned foods to donate to the local Paradise Food pantries! There will be bins at both Ace Hardware as well as at the Paradise Community Park the night of the events to collect your non-perishable foods.

So please come out to the Paradise Community Park to watch the tree lighting and view the Truck Parade of Lights. Bring your kids and bring your cameras!
