Santa wishes he had that much power pulling his sleigh.

The traditional red and green of Christmas will take a back seat to Carolina Panthers blue when the football team lights its own towering tree. You can join in the funĀ outside of Bank of America Stadium (corner of Mint and Graham) on Tuesday, November 26th from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM, rain or shine.

The 6th Annual Carolina Panthers Tree Lighting is a free event that will include appearances and performances by Sir Purr, the TopCats Cheerleaders, PurrCussion Drumline, and the Black & Blue Crew. There will also be free hot cocoa, activities for the kids and a visit from St. Nick. Other food and beverages will be available for purchase from food trucks.

The Panthers invite you to bring lawn chairs. They also recommend riding the LYNX to avoid parking hassles in uptown Charlotte. The stop closest to the stadium is Stonewall Street.
