Downtown Statesville Christmas Tree Lighting
The official lighting of the Downtown Statesville Christmas Tree is set for Thursday, December 2 in front of the Old County Courthouse. Enjoy classic holiday songs performed by The Kincaids from 6-7 pm and watch in delight as Santa and Mayor Kutteh countdown to light the tree at 6:45 pm.
We invite people to come downtown, enjoy the twinkling lights of the beautiful trees and wreaths throughout downtown before stopping by to enjoy the tree lighting on Thursday evening. Be sure to stop by the Statesville Civic Center for a FREE ride on the Little Blue Choo and warm up with hot chocolate. There will be carriage rides to take you on a festive ride through the streets.
