Main Line Tree Lighting Events

Get merry around town with these tree lightings!

The oohs and ahhs heard at the lighting of a Christmas tree are sounds you only hear once a year, unless you attend every tree lighting on this list and then you can hear the excitement about ten times! Tag your pics on Instagram with #mainlineparent, we’d love to share them.
