Mark your calendars for the North City Business Association’s 24th Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Festival!
We at North City Water District look forward to this special moment every year—when hundreds of colorful lights in the shape of a giant Christmas tree suddenly light up the night sky, installed by our crew on top of our 3.7 million gallon reservoir.
As always, this festival offers fun for the entire family, including live music, sing-along carols, warm beverages, tasty Christmas cookies, and photos with Santa Claus… but there’s something extra this year: the Center for Human Services is conducting a Toy Drive! If you are able, consider bringing a new, unwrapped toy to donate on the night of the event. Here are a few ideas:
- Infants: plush animals, sensory and developmental toys
- Children ages 3-10: books, science kits, Legos, puzzles, games, soccer balls or basketballs, art kits / supplies, dolls, plush animals
- Teens: sports equipment, board games, science kits, art supplies, gift cards for clothing or music stores
We hope to see you all there!
