Los Gatos Tree Lighting Ceremony and Parade

2015 Los Gatos Tree LightingTwo of the best attended and most celebrated holiday events in town are the tree lighting and the parade, both of which usually happen the first weekend in December.

43rd Annual Town Tree Lighting

This year, the Los Gatos Tree Lighting Ceremony will take place Friday, December 4th, at the Town Plaza Park (located at Main & Santa Cruz).   The fun begins at 5pm with entertainment and youth awards.  At 6pm the tree is lit, and Santa arrives just after to visit with the children until 7pm.  There are refreshments available to purchase (an important fundraiser) at the Chamber of Commerce’s Carriage Ride Booth.

The 59th Annual Los Gatos Children’s Christmas/Holidays Parade!

In the morning following the tree lighting, the town’s residents return to the downtown area to line the E Main Street and N Santa Cruz Avenue for the holiday parade.  It begins at 11am but the parking is taken a lot sooner than that, so go earlier!

Sponsors: LGS Recreation, Los Gatos Christmas Foundation, Los Gatos Lions club, and the Town of Los Gatos
