DeTar Healthcare System and Townsquare Media invite you to join us as we Kick-Off Christmas with our first annual Christmas Tree Lighting celebration at DeTar Hospital North on Tuesday, November 27.

The fun-filled event begins at 4:00 p.m. Event goers will find booths with games, cookie decorating, storytelling and a hot cocoa bar. At 4:30 p.m. the Victoria Fire Department will deliver Santa Claus from the North Pole in a bright, red fire truck. Children will have the opportunity to tell Santa their Christmas wishes while they get their photos taken.

We have a huge tree that will light up our campus throughout the holiday season, and we cannot wait to share its beauty and the spirit of Christmas with our community. This event is for everyone: the young and young-at-heart.

The tree lighting will occur shortly after sunset, which is forecast to be around 5:40 p.m. that evening.
