Light Up Monroe

Tree Lighting Festival

Join us Sunday, November 25, 2018 for Light Up Monroe. 


We've got Santa, carolers, hot cider, reindeer food, of course the amazing tree lighting planned for you on Sunday, November 25!


So grab the kiddos, invite your friends and family and head on down to Monroe this Thanksgiving weekend!


Ceremonial lighting of tree begins shortly after Santa arrives.


Thanks to the amazing efforts from Monroe Windermere our tree has been professionally decorated with highest quality lights we could find and given a huge face lift! Monroe Windermere spearheaded the financial efforts to find 4 other sponsors to help pay for the lights that brighten Traveler's Park during the holiday season! 


Thank you Windermere Monroe for all your support and contributions to make Light Up Monroe the amazing event it is today!!!
