City of Bowie Tree Lighting Ceremony
Sunday, December 5, 2021
Join friends and neighbors at the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Watch as the mayor lights the tree, marking the beginning of the holiday season in Bowie. There will be caroling, then Santa will make an appearance with the help of the Bowie Volunteer Fire Department.
Due to COVID precautions Santa will not greet each child or invite them on his lap. Instead, he will ask children to write him a letter and to put it in his North Pole mailbox. (Materials and mailbox provided at the event.) Santa’s elves will also share treats that are reported to be coming from the North Pole.
While Santa will make an appearance he will not meet and greet each child. We will also have a Santa Mailbox and letters for the kids to fill out.
