On the day after Thanksgiving, the Culture Vulture goes to the Capital Hotel to see the Christmas tree arrive and be erected. This year’s tree is 34 feet tall. It very nearly touches the stained glass ceiling in the Capital Hotel lobby.
Over the weekend, the busy elves of Tipton Hurst work to get the tree decorated in time for the treelighting festivities.
Tonight (Monday, November 28) Santa makes his first 2016 appearance in downtown Little Rock for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting!
The Capital Hotel will be roasting chestnuts, enjoying Christmas cookies and sipping on hot chocolate and our famous eggnog. The festivities begin at 5:00pm with the tree lighting at 6:30pm.
There will be music, merriment, and more.
