Hey Moms in the Austin area…
We just got word that Santa is set to arrive at the Domain during the 7th Annual Lighting of The Great Tree on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 6 pm.
And the big guy isn’t making this a solo act. Country music star Phil Vassar will be sharing the spotlight with Santa, as he treats everyone to sounds of the season. The holiday celebration will also feature a special performance by Outside Voices, a vocal performance group founded in 2009. Outside Voices is open to all Austin and surrounding area youth with performers ranging in age from K-12th grades. The group is dedicated to carrying the message of grace and love through their performances and service work.
And of course, there will be a tree. But not just any tree. The Domain’s 40-foot tree, will sparkle with more than 6,000 twinkling lights and 400 ornaments.
The festivities will start earlier in the day with family-friendly activities starting at noon. The celebration will include children’s holiday music, face painting, caricature drawings, balloon twisting and holiday crafts near the iPic Theater. Many stores will also be offering special in-store events and offers throughout the day.
Following the tree lighting, attendees are invited to enjoy marshmallow roasting in The Park. Strolling carolers will also spread holiday cheer around the center.
“We invite the community to continue the tradition of beginning the holiday season with friends and family at The Domain as we celebrate with music, lights and fireworks,” said Lauren Krumlauf, Area Director of Marketing for The Domain. “Each year we look forward to transforming the center with festive decorations and hosting family-friendly entertainment, beginning with our tree lighting.”
