Brisbane set to sparkle with Christmas lights
Be the first to see the dazzling display of sparkling lights on the sky-high Lord Mayor's Christmas Tree on Friday 26 November 2021 as the switch is flicked to begin this spectacular opening to Christmas in the city.

The lighting ceremony will take place from 6:30pm to 7:30pm and is free, so bring the family and gather your friends to enjoy a moment to start your Christmas season off the right way.

The tree officially stands at 22 metres tall. If you can't make it to the tree lighting event, don't worry, the Christmas Tree will take centre stage in King George Square from 26 November 2021 to 6 January 2022.

The installation of a Christmas Tree in the Brisbane CBD dates back to 1954 when Brisbane residents suggested to the then Lord Mayor that a Christmas tree be erected to add a festive atmosphere to the city, That idea was picked up and the tradition has continued some 7 decades later.

Visual and Audio Display: The Night Before Christmas
As a bonus, City Hall will also be the canvas for a stunning visual and audio display.
