Bend’s Christmas tree lighting is tonight

Downtown Bend Christmas TreeThe annual lighting of Downtown Bend’s Christmas tree is tonight, with festivities kicking off at 6 o’clock. This year the tree is in a new location, at the top of Drake Park by Brooks Street and Franklin Avenue—its new permanent location as I’m reading it on the Facebook event page, the “beautiful new spruce Christmas Tree planted at the top of Drake Park.”

The festivities get under way @ 6pm.

Santa will light the tree @ 6:45pm so get there early to get a good spot!

A great tradition in Central Oregon! The Downtown Bend Christmas Tree Lighting. Spend the evening singing carols & listening to local choirs.

Our new Downtown Bend donut shop Luv’s Donuts will be there handing out FREE donut samples!!!

Visit with Santa at the Plaza at Franklin & Wall next to Starbuck’s afterwards!

Make note of that free doughnut samples being handed out by the new Luv’s Donuts: they are newly opened at 10 Minnesota Avenue, adjacent to The Oxford Hotel. Santa and doughnuts, you can’t go wrong!
