Join the Downtown Museum District on the grounds of the Art Museum of Southeast Texas and Texas Energy Museum at 500 Main Street for the annual Holiday Tree Lighting Party from 3:30 - 6 p.m. on Thursday, December 3, 2015.  

Children and their families are invited to celebrate the holiday season with hands-on activities at this festive celebration complete with a visit from Santa Claus! Admission is free and open to the public. 

Bring the entire family and light up the season by creating festive ornaments, decorating holiday cookies, and visiting with Santa Claus before mailing a letter to the North Pole. Other activities will be provided by area museums, attractions and businesses. Completing the afternoon of holiday fun is the lighting of the Christmas tree at 6 p.m. by Beaumont Mayor, Becky Ames. Children are encouraged to decorate the tree with the ornaments they created, and take one home for their own decoration.

The annual Holiday Tree Lighting Party is a great holiday celebration where children and their families have the opportunity to explore the excitement that downtown Beaumont museums and arts organizations have to offer and light up the season with free, family-oriented fun.
