Holiday Lighting Ceremony and Santa Rescue

Lawrence KS Holiday Lighting and Santa Rescue

Please make plans to attend this annual downtown Lawrence tradition when the twinkle lights along Massachusetts Street are lit up for the holiday season, and Santa needs a hand from the Lawrence Fire Department as he gets stuck atop Weaver’s Department store.

The festivities begin at 6 pm the day after Thanksgiving at 9th and Mass.

There’ll be a North Pole Post Office outpost tent where kiddos can drop off letters to Santa. Letter-writing supplies will be available, or you can download one of the templates below to complete and bring along.

You can listen live to the entire event from our friends at KLWN FM 101.7 / AM1320 or stream it online.

This festive event is made possible by the Lawrence Central Rotary and the Lawrence Kids Calendar.
