Christmas in Lancaster

Mayor’s Tree Lighting and Tuba Christmas

There are few better ways to kick off the Christmas season than by attending the Mayor’s Tree Lighting and “Tuba Christmas.” The event takes place in Penn Square, the perfect location for all Lancaster residents to see the spectacle in person.

Kitchen Kettle Village

Of all the areas in Lancaster that celebrate the Christmas season, few do it better than Kitchen Kettle Village. Dubbed Kitchen Kettle Christmas, the village is a winter wonderland designed to give families a Christmas they’ll never forget. Visitors can have breakfast with Santa Claus and a gingerbread man mascot, or dine in the evening with Mrs. Claus.

Christmas Tree Train

There’s nothing quite like traveling on the Christmas Tree Train to Leaman Place Grove to find your family tree! Once families have chosen their tree, it’s cut and shipped back to the station where children will be entertained by holiday classics and rides on the Tinsel Trolley.

We here at Lancaster Nissan hope to see you out and about taking part in the festivities this holiday season!
