Santa Lights Manassas, also known as the Tree Lighting, has been a fixture in the Manassas community for over 27 years! It takes place on the Friday night before the Christmas Parade beginning at 5:15p.m. TD Bank is our official sponsor of the night.  The magic of the evening begins with holiday musical performances and then Santa arrives in Manassas shortly after 6 p.m. After the tree is lit, Santa and Mrs. Claus greet all the children and listen to their holiday wishes at the tent.  Families can enjoy free wagon rides to get into the holiday spirit. The Harris Pavilion Ice Rink will be open for business as well as the downtown shops and restaurants.

   Thank you to our 2021 sponsors!
