100’ Christmas Tree Lighting (Delray Beach, FL)

Anyone in Delray Beach knows that Old School Square hosts one of the largest and most beautiful Christmas trees in America. At over 10 stories tall, this towering behemoth is comprised of over 3,000 (fake) tree branches, 15,000 LED lights, 40,000 ornaments and one 18-foot golden star topper. Visitors can even pay a small donation to walk through the inside of the tree. (It’s well worth a buck!)

The lighting event in Delray Beach, which takes place this year on November 30, 2021, attracts tens of thousands of attendees each year, making it one of the most popular Christmas events in South Florida. Old School Square Pavilion is also lighting a Menorah on November 28, 2021.
