The Tree Lighting Ceremony was a Success!! The Tree is Lit Waukegan!!

Last Saturday Mayor Sam Cunningham flipped the switch and lit up the Christmas Tree in Jack Benny Plaza on Clayton and Genesee Streets! The Mayor was joined by the Waukegan Pagent Queens, Aldermen and Countywide elected officials!


Before the tree lighting took place, Urban Edge was filled with families taking Selfies With Santa, visiting vendors and listening to live performances!


Special Thanks to Green Noise, Nancy Flores and the Waukegan School’s Estrella Mariachi Band! Each performance sparked the crowd and had the audience moving and grooving! If you missed the performances watch here.


Thanks to the City of Waukegan for partnering together for another successful lighting! Thanks to our vendors and performers! Lastly, thank you, Waukegan, for coming out and supporting! We hope you had as much fun as we did and look forward to doing this again next year! Happy Holidays, Waukegan!
