From the Jefferson:

This time honored tradition at The Jefferson is in its 30th year. The evening’s festivities begin at 5:00pm with holiday musical performances. The Tree Lighting ceremony begins at 5:45pm and includes a host of holiday characters. The ceremony concludes with the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus for the lighting of the tree.

This event is free and open to the public. Guests are invited to the Empire Ballroom following the ceremony to enjoy complimentary refreshments.

Guests of the event will also be the first to enjoy the annual Gingerbread Display prepared by Executive Pastry Chef Sara Ayyash and her talented team. Thousands of pounds of gingerbread, royal icing and candy are used to create a child-sized depiction of a classic holiday scene. The display will be in the Palm Court Lobby through Sunday, January 1.

The hotel will be decorated for the season beginning Monday, November 28 for Tree Lighting through Sunday, January 1, 2017. Hundreds of poinsettias, yards of garland and ribbon, thousands of twinking lights and dozens of toy soldiers will adorn the public spaces.
