November is here which means it’s almost time for Christmas! I can already hear the chiming of the jingle bells and Mariah Carey belting ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. In fact, the Queen City Christmas events are fast approaching! And with so many different events from parades to festivals to concerts to shopping and lights, it can be overwhelming. But we are here to help you make plans to get everything done this holiday season. Let’s start it off with 14 Charlotte area holiday tree lightings you can check out this year.

Who doesn’t love a good tree lighting? They mark the start of the holiday season and those trees bring so much joy to so many people. It’s not just simply turning on the lights on the tree either. Many tree lightings include a visit from Santa, hot chocolate, snacks, train rides, visits from other characters, and other family-friendly activities! You can find all of that in more in the numerous tree lightings throughout the region. In fact, you can probably make a couple if you want to take full advantage of the holiday season. And it’s Christmas after all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. So check out 14 of the Charlotte area tree lightings to attend this year below!
