Lakewood Lights December 1

Happy Holidays! Thank you for joining us and we'll see you next year! 

Stay tuned! The date for the 2024 Lakewood Lights celebration will be announced soon. 

About Lakewood Lights

Gather your friends, family and neighbors for this annual celebration! Join Lakewood Mayor and City Council for a lighting ceremony, then enjoy a stroll among the light displays, listen to festive live music and warm up with hot cocoa. Meet with jolly old Santa Claus or craft an ornament to commemorate this happy holiday. 


Heritage Lakewood will be glowing with a spectacular display of holiday cheer. All of our buildings will be open to the public and decorated for the occasion.

Meet and greets are free and available on a first come, first serve basis. Please arrive at the beginning of the evening to reserve your place in the queue. We will take down your name and cell phone number and will text you when it's your turn to meet Santa!

Please note that Santa can visit with only so many kiddos in one night, so we will be taking names for the queue as long as both space and time permit.
