Saturday, December 10th, Council Member Dwight Boykins host the 2nd Annual Holiday Tree Lighting & Kwanzaa Celebration on Almeda. Festivities will begin at 4 p.m. with live music, a one-of-a-kind fashion show and an interactive Kwanzaa Village. In 2014 the free event attracted an audience of more than 2,000 people.
The Holiday Tree Lighting & Kwanzaa Celebration on Almeda is the official kick-off for the holiday season and is free of charge. The show features live performances by J. Paul Jr and the Zydeco NuBreeds, Coldwell Elementary School Orchestra, Texas Southern University Choir, Kwanzaa Drummers and Dancers, and the University of Houston Men of Moores, among others.
Santa will also be on site for photos with children and the event also offers a fantastic kids zone, which includes a rock climbing wall. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy a holiday beverage and food available from vendor stands and food trucks. Santa and Council Member Dwight Boykins will light a towering Holiday Tree, glowing with colorful Christmas lights and shimmering ornaments followed by a one-a-kind fireworks display.
