The Free, Open-to-the Public Event, Emceed by WPTV’s Steve Weagle, to Celebrate So Many “Reasons for the Season”

Boca Raton, FL – CP Group invites the community to the official launch to festivities in Boca Raton when it presents the first free and open-to-the-public community Tree Lighting & Holiday Extravaganza of the 2023 holiday season. Featuring WPTV’s First Alert Chief Meteorologist Steve Weagle as emcee, the evening will be packed with family fun, complete with the first Santa arrival and meet and greet with the return of his live reindeer on Thursday, November 16, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRiC).  Offering thousands of free parking spaces, the event is located off Yamato Road at 5000 T-Rex Avenue in Boca Raton.

An illuminated “Snowflake Lane” will usher eventgoers into the winter wonderland of memory-making fun, with activities, selfie and group photo opportunities, and food. All are in anticipation of the lighting of the evening’s centerpiece, the bedecked 40-foot Christmas tree adorned with thousands of twinkling LED lights and hundreds of ornaments. Interactive entertainment will be led by Celebrity DJ Dennis Michael Stelling (who has opened for John Mayer and others), following community choir, acapella, and dance performances. WPTV is the event’s exclusive TV sponsor and Boca Raton Magazine its exclusive magazine sponsor.
