Presented by The City of Chicago and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) the 96th Annual Christmas Tree
Lighting Ceremony is a highly-anticipated event drawing people of all ages to the heart of Chicago's
downtown "Loop." Holiday Music will begin at 4:00 p.m. with the CPS All-City Elementary Youth
Chorus and the holiday season officially commences at 4:30 p.m., when the switch is flipped and the
lights shine bright in Daley Plaza.
