November 21 6th Annual Tree Lighting & Santa's Arrival
Thanksgiving Eve

Gather the whole family for a magical evening at Shadow Lake Towne Center on the night before Thanksgiving.

Concert - 6 p.m. | Alegent Creighton Health Amphitheatre by "The Peppermint Elves"
Prior to the lighting event, a number of caroling elves will entertain event attendees with holiday carols. Jingle bells will also be distributed to children so they can help “ring in” Santa Claus to center court.

Parade - 6:30 p.m. | Main Street & Roundabout
Santa will arrive by “Cinderella” carriage, led by the Papillion-LaVista South Titan Marching Band, along with favorite storybook and holiday characters and citizens of “Whoville”.

The parade starts between Nebraska Brewing Company and the COX Solutions Store and will continue to the roundabout.

When Santa makes his way to the stage, he'll flip the switch to illuminate the tree and holiday decor throughout Shadow Lake Towne Center. Keep your eye on the sky during this time for a fireworks show, provided by Wild Willy's Fireworks.
