Town Square Lighting 

The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the annual Town Square Lighting Ceremony on Friday, November 29, 2013 from 5:00-7:00pm on Jackson’s Town Square. This favorite holiday event features a visit from Santa Claus along with holiday music and Christmas carols from the Jackson Hole Community Band and Jackson Hole Chorale. Albertson’s and McDonald’s will provide cookies, hot chocolate, and coffee. 

Thousands of LED bulbs will be wrapped around the famous elk antler arches and strung around the stately trees. The lighting of the Town Square is a breathtaking moment as the bulbs sparkle to life. Children and families delight at the arrival of Santa Claus who enters with a team of sled dogs from Jackson Hole Iditarod. A special group of volunteers from Dancers’ Workshop will be assisting Santa and the children hoping to visit with him and Teton Literacy Center will provide free books to children of all ages.
