12th Annual Christmas on Broadway Tree Lighting
Friday November 18, 2016
A Fort Wayne holiday tradition continues for its 12th consecutive year, as the citys holiday season begins with the lighting of the tree on Broadway.
The dazzling display of 30,000 colored lighting lit simultaneously with a spectacular fireworks display has made "Christmas on Broadway" a must see for the holiday season! Yearly, thousands of guests enjoy the tree lighting and fireworks display. Located on the Broadway Plaza in front of the Shine and Hardin Building, the celebration brightens the city's center core with a 35 foot Colorado Spruce adorned with over 30,000 lights. This year, Prairie Farms Dairy, will provide holiday beverages including hot chocolate and eggnog.
Both WPTA21 and Fort Wayne's NBC will telecast the tree lighting and fireworks display live on each station's 6pm newscast.
