Winter Lighting Ceremony

Wednesday, November 27, 2019

Celebrate the kick-off to the holiday season in Burnsville’s Heart of the City, which will once again shine bright with more than 200,000 mini lights, 230 streetlight snowflakes and a 30-foot-tall tree.

Ceremony attendees can visit with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, listen to entertainment by local school choirs, and witness the “flip of the switch” that lights up Burnsville’s downtown with holiday spirit through February. 

The ceremony will include a special appearance by Mr. and Mrs. Claus as well as entertainment by the Burnsville High School Freestyle Singers.

Jo Jo’s Rise & Wine and Caribou Coffee will provide coffee, The Original Pancake House will provide hot chocolate, Chianti Grill will provide fresh baked cookies, Cub Foods will provide candy canes, and Chick-fil-A will provide hot sandwiches – all complimentary!  Colorful, LED pins will also be for sale at the event.  Proceeds will support HOMAGE, the latest project of the Burnsville Community Foundation.

Free parking is available at the Heart of the City Park and Ride Ramp located one block north of Burnsville Parkway on Pillsbury Avenue and in the Heart of the City Parking Deck located north of the Ames Center.

The Winter Lighting Ceremony is sponsored and paid for by the Burnsville Community Foundation through generous donations by more than 300 area businesses and residents.
