On Wednesday, November 24th, you are likely to find many of your neighbors at Shain Park for the official kickoff of the holiday season in Birmingham. The festivities for the annual Birmingham Holiday Tree lighting will begin at 6 pm.
As with past years, children will be able to start visiting Santa House, and Santa himself immediately after the official lighting of the Birmingham Holiday Tree. Many fun events are being planned right now for children, and adults alike.
I have been to the Birmingham Holiday Tree lighting in the past, and it is one of the best times of the year to see local celebrities. Many of the major names from the area come out to celebrate with their family, friends, and fans. Come along, and see who you can spot.
