The annual Fort Smith Downtown Business Association (FSDBA) Christmas tree lighting in Downtown Fort Smith will happen on November 24th from 5 PM to 8 PM at Ross Pendergraft Park.
Come out and help us count down to the tree and park lighting for the holidays.
The Community School of the Arts will be there singing carols and Quesa-Dee-Y’alls will be on hand with warm hot chocolate and more for everyone.
You can also support two Fort SMith Downtown Business Association non-profit members, STEPS Family Resource Center and the Community Rescue Mission, by bringing an unwrapped toy to help spread the Christmas cheer. Toys can be dropped off at the Santa House during the tree lighting event.
There’ll be pony rides, too! Only $5 for kids 12 and under.
PLUS, Santa Claus will make his first appearance of the season at his house in the park for all the kids to tell him what they want for Christmas. If you can’t make it out to the lighting ceremonies, Santa will be visiting his house on December 1st, 8th, 15th from 12 noon until 3:30 PM each Saturday. So come out any time you can and let the kids visit with Santa Claus at his house which makes a perfect photo opportunity for everyone!
