DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — The city of Delray Beach is lighting its iconic 100-foot Christmas tree on Tuesday, Nov. 30. at Old School Square.

The celebration will start at 6 p.m. with delicious food, musical performances, crafts and a holiday village with a carousel, ice skating and photos with Santa.

The event is hosted by WPTV NewsChannel 5's Chief Meteorologist Steve Weagle.

"Delray is a fantastic city that loves to come together for big events and celebrate. The 100-foot Christmas tree becomes the center of the city for a few weeks each year and is a great way to kick off the season," Weagle said. "Hopefully, we can get a Snuggle Alert to go along with the tree lighting. The weather should be perfect."

The 100 Foot Christmas Tree tradition dates back to 1993. Since then it has been named "Best Tree in the State of Florida" by Travel + Leisure Magazine ranked with the trees in New York's Rockefeller Center and the National Christmas Tree in Washington D.C.
