It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and nothing sets the Holiday Season into full swing more than the lighting of Downtown Miami’s Christmas Tree. The iconic 50-foot tree that sits in the middle of Bayfront Park will serve as the center and focal point of the Bayskate roller-skating rink at Bayfront Holiday Village. On Saturday November 30, it will receive a celebrity filled countdown and illumination worthy of a million twinkling lights. South Florida celebrities and dignitaries will be on-hand to light the tree and set the LED animation into musical motion, including Mayor Francis Suarez of the City of Miami and Commissioner Joe Carollo, Chairman of the Bayfront Park Trust. The tree will trip the light fantastic to three different festive musical shows produced by Grammy winner, A.T. Molina, who is the original producer/creator of the Burrito Sabanero mix. Enrique Santos from Tu949 will join Sasha Jones, Consumer Investigative Reporter for NBC 6 and Alejandra Molina, News Anchor at Telemundo 51, to host the event, along with Santa Claus, who is scheduled to arrive in Miami fashion via a yacht. Together, they will make sure that this tree will continue to serve as Santa’s guiding light to Miami.

“This is a special tree, because after the initial lighting ceremony, we will have mini lighting ceremonies every night all the way through Christmas. Not just every night, but every hour,” says Tony Albelo, SWARM CEO and event organizer. Each night starting at 6PM, the park will become quiet, the music will rev up, and the tree will display one of the most beautifully animated light shows ever sequenced. Those who miss the initial tree-lighting ceremony on November 30, will have an opportunity to experience it again and again while enjoying hot cocoa and churros or sipping seasonal cocktails such as the Peppermint Mojito, Mistletoe Mule, White Christmas Margarita or Winter Bourbon Smash at the North Pole Beach Club.

The lighting of the 50-ft animated tree at Bayfront Holiday Village will mark the opening of this picture-perfect, outdoor, holiday venue filled with larger-than-life holiday displays, waterfront roller-skating, local vendors, nightly music and top food and drink offerings. Whether you’re chilling at the North Pole Beach Club, partaking in the Gnauhty Gnome Scavenger Hunt, or taking a selfie with Santa, there’s something for everyone!
