Broadway Plaza, Broadway at Beaver Avenue
Continuing a 15 year tradition, the Fort Wayne holiday season begins on Friday, November 22, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. with “Christmas On Broadway,” featuring a spectacular tree lighting and fireworks display in front of the Shine & Hardin building on the Broadway Plaza.
Over 35,000 colored lights will be lit simultaneously with a spectacular display of fireworks underwritten by the Fort Wayne Komets, making “Christmas On Broadway” one of Fort Wayne’s premier holiday events. From its start 15 years ago as a neighborhood holiday celebration with only 150 people in attendance to now, in what has become a community wide celebration where more than 4,000 people come to kick off the holiday season, “Christmas On Broadway” is a holiday tradition and a must see event for the entire family.
The Broadway Plaza, in the heart of the ’07 neighborhoods, is located in front of the Shine & Hardin Building. The celebration brightens the city’s center core with a forty foot Colorado Spruce adorned with over 35,000 lights.
In addition to the lighting of the tree, visitors will be able to take part in other family friendly activities, all free of charge, including a visit and photo opportunity with Santa and Mrs. Claus, refreshments, rides on a train and the chance to see and pet a live reindeer.
Christmas Tree lighting and fireworks promptly at 6:00 pm. Arrive early as off-street parking is limited and heavy traffic is expected.
