Mayor Randall L. Woodfin, the Birmingham City Council, the Birmingham Park and Rec Board and Coca-Cola UNITED will present the city’s Holiday Tree Lighting Block Party on Sunday, Nov. 27 in front of City Hall on Short 20th Street North. There will be vendors, food trucks, free concerts and a lighting of the Christmas tree.
Because Hanukkah is not until Sunday, Dec. 18, the city’s large menorah will not be lit during the tree lighting. Instead, the menorah will be at the tree lighting event, just not lit. The city will light the large menorah, which will be located inside the lobby of City Hall, once Hanukkah starts.
The tree lighting will be from 4 to 8 p.m.
