Celebrate the holiday season at the Evanston Tree Lighting ceremony at Fountain Square. Join Santa and Mrs. Claus to enjoy an evening of musical performances, holiday cheer, hot chocolate, and watch the tree light up at 5:30pm. We’re also excited to announce that the Cubs mascot Clark and the White Sox mascot Southpaw will celebrate with the Evanston community! Look for them in the crowd!
