This winter event will take place at Mississippi Crossings on December 3, 2022!  It’s one of many community events to come at Mississippi Crossings as they focus on creating experiences that activate the riverfront for residents and bring their community together.

City Council approved the purchase of an animated 30-foot LED panel tree that will sync to music and offer shows between 5pm and 10pm throughout the month of December. In addition, they purchased a 16-foot walk through ornament, a 16-foot walk through gift box, and 16 snowflake light pole fixtures.

Gather your family and friends beneath the lights for a unique photo opportunity! The lights will be done in hometown blue and white with a snowflake add for an eventual winter festival. The tree will continue to grow in 4-foot increments annually as they continue to grow and develop the hometown holiday experience at Mississippi Crossings.
